Honoring Marilyn's legacy of activism
People continue to honor Marilyn's legacy in a variety of ways.
The Colab Radio project describes Marilyn as "a renowned scholar, inspiring teacher, and highly respected social activist...best known for saying things like, 'That’s bullshit! I want to know what the community people think,' when ‘experts’ talked too much."
The Urban Affairs Association in partnership with SAGE Publications, issues a Marilyn J. Gittell Activist Scholar Award in “recognition of Marilyn’s legacy, and to encourage ongoing activist scholarship.” The award is given to an activist scholar “who exemplifies [her] tradition of community-oriented research and policy advocacy.” Click here for a list of previous winners.
