On Tuesday, March 25, The ACLU of New Jersey hosted The Lights of Liberty Awards Dinner. They presented the Roger N. Baldwin Award to Perry Rosenstein and Gladys Miller-Rosenstein of The Puffin Foundation Ltd. for making social activism and human rights priorities in their philanthropy and the Honorable Virginia Long for outstanding work strengthening and protecting civil rights and civil liberties in New Jersey. Rubin M. Sinnis, Esq., and The New Jersey Dream Act Coalition were awarded The Legal Leadership Award and Torchbearer Award respectively.

Perry and Gladys Rosenstein, ACLU supporters for decades, have made human rights, social activism and support for independent journalism hallmarks of their philanthropy.  The following is an except from Perry and Gladys’ speech:

“Gladys and I are honored to find that the ACLU has recognized us (The Puffin Foundation) for our commitment to social activism, preserving independent journalism and defense of human rights. We are not alone in these strugglers and we are proud to be partners with the ACLU who year in and year out are on the barricades defending and encouraging the growth of democracy in our county and elsewhere on this planet. Their work has inspired us to strengthen our commitment to art and culture.”
