Heart and Vision Awards
TUCC’s Heart & Vision Awards recognize significant contributions to social justice. Since 2009, twenty-two individuals have been honoured with the award.
The 2019 event took place on October 28th. The Honorable Margaret McCain was honoured for her leadership in the field of Early Childhood Education and its importance for the protection and good health of children. Guests were entertained by a gospel trio consisting of Jackie Richardson, Billy Newton-Davis, and Alana Bridgewater.
In 2018, award recipients were Senator Murray Sinclair, who served as the chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and husband and wife, Grafton and Eileen Antone whose ministries included leadership at the University of Toronto and the founding of the Toronto Urban Native Ministry. First Nations author and playwright, Drew Hayden Taylor hosted the evening. Attendees gained insight into the challenge before us – as a church, and as nations reconciling with one another.
