Interfaith Action of Central Texas announces 2018 Hope Awards
May 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm - $200
Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT) invites everyone to celebrate Austin as a welcoming community. On Tuesday, May 1, iACT will continue the tradition of hosting the Hope Awards, one of the most uplifting nights of the year in Austin. The 2018 Hope Awards will take place at The Bullock Texas State History Museum (1800 Congress Ave.) and will celebrate iACT’s 30 years of service to Central Texas. The evening will feature an intimate conversation with Luci Baines Johnson (daughter of former U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson) and Evan Smith (host of the PBS program “Overheard with Evan Smith”).

The Hope Awards is iACT’s major fundraiser for their community service programs, such as Hands on Housing, which repairs the homes of low-income seniors and people with disabilities, and the iACT for Refugees program which provides Basic English instruction and other supportive services to newly-arrived refugees from around the world. iACT’s work centers around inclusion, peace and respect among all faith communities. Their programs strive to be an example of what it looks like to live in harmony and inclusion with one another. But these programs need support from the larger community to make their service work possible.
At this year’s Hope Awards, iACT will recognize individuals and organizations from Austin who have proven their commitment to strengthening our community through their words and actions. The 2018 Hope Awards honorees will include:
- Luci Baines Johnson
- Imam Mohamed-Umer Esmail & Nueces Mosque
