Join us as we gather at our third annual Building a Dream luncheon to celebrate another year of strengthening communities in Houston through decent, safe and affordable housing.
Majora Carter, a MacArthur Fellow and Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, has redefined urban revitalization strategy, earning both national and international acclaim.
Carter’s quote “You shouldn’t have to move out of your neighborhood to live in a better one” is part of the permanent collection on the walls of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, and forms the basis of her talent-retention approach to local economic development.
Starting in the South Bronx and expanding to under-resourced communities throughout the United States, she has created and implemented numerous green-infrastructure projects, policies, and job training and placement systems.
The Carl Umland Award
Reverend Harvey Clemons, Jr. will be honored for his work to revitalize Houston’s Fifth Ward and demonstrating the same passion, tenacity and dedication to Houston Habitat’s mission as its founder, Carl Umland.
