The Social Justice Award is unique in that it allows OCASI member agencies to vote directly for their favorite organization.

Voting is easier than ever – cast your votes at any time during the Voting Round from October 5, 2018 to October 22, 2018.

The process is entirely automated on our end. The nomination with the most votes wins!

Please Note: If you are voting for one agency, the voting platform will allow you to only vote once from the same device. However, you will be able to cast your vote for more than one agency from the same device.

The winner will be announced at the OCASI 40th Anniversary Gala on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
