Ann Klein 2021

The Ann Klein Advocate Awards was created in 1988 to honor Ann Klein, former Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Human Services, who was instrumental in establishing a community-based system of care for people with mental and physical disabilities. The award recognizes honorees for the outstanding contributions they have made in improving the lives of people living with disabilities.
The Mike Lione Accessibility Award was established in 2013 in memory of long time Community Health Law Project Board Member and former chair Mike Lione. This award is presented to an individual or entity that has performed exemplary work as an advocate for accessibility on behalf of persons living with disabilities.
