Jim Schlecht Celebration

Social Justice Champion

Here is the text of the plaque that was presented to Jim yesterday.

We the members of Cleveland’s progressive community recognize Jim Schlecht for his thirty years of exemplary service to the least among us and his ability to demonstrate compassion on the streets of Cleveland.  We recognize his struggle for mercy and peace in a society that does not always embrace the Beatitudes.   Cleveland is a better place to raise a family because of Jim Schlecht’s work everyday to reduce hunger and homelessness and find justice for the persecuted. Presented this 24th Day of April 2012.

We have put together a photo display from the event here.

I will post my comments from the event sometime this week.
