Some people were just endowed with extraordinary vision.
In the late 1990s, Nan Cheney looked at the old Willy Street Co-op building at the corner of Willy Street & Few and saw into the future. Where most of us merely saw an empty commercial space, she had a vision for a more just Madison.

Nan foresaw a space in which community-based nonprofits could come together under one roof for common benefit and to:

- Learn from one another through their day-to-day interactions
- Work across issue areas to create a broader social justice movement
- Keep their administrative costs manageable, and
- Serve as a gathering place for the progressive community

It has been 14 years since we have began our operations and this year we would like you all to join us as we honor the following individuals and organizations for their outstanding work and impact in our community:

2014 Social Justice Legacy Award: Frank and Dolores Emspak
2014 Social Justice Visionary Award: Occupy Madison, Inc. - OM Village
