On June 30, 2015, Courage Campaign honored Douglas Moore, Jr., for his visionary leadership as Executive Director of United Domestic Workers of America, and his profound dedication to California’s workers and the broader progressive movement. Held at the beautiful Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento, the United in Courage Awards brings together California’s progressive leaders in the heart of the capital for a casual and celebratory evening. Presenting the award to Moore was Charisse Bremond Weaver, President of Brotherhood Crusade in Los Angeles. The inaugural Legacy in Courage Award was given to Willie L. Pelote, Sr., following his retirement from AFSCME California People. Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez spoke and presented the award to Pelote.
