Danalynn Recer Awarded PETRA Fellowship
The Petra Foundation was established in 1988 to sustain the trajectory of Petra Tölle Shattuck's life by honoring the kind of people she most admired – unsung individuals making distinctive contributions to the rights, autonomy and dignity of others. Each year since then, through a national search and nomination process, the Petra Foundation has recognized such leaders as Petra Fellows." Today, as government at all levels disinvests in the public weal, as the courts retreat from the hard-won remedies of the civil rights revolution, as the ranks of the poor and disenfranchised continue to swell in the world’s richest democracy, leaders working at the local level to craft innovative solutions to enduring problems are needed more than ever before. Danalynn Recer, GRACE's founder and director, was awarded a Petra Fellowship in November 2004.
