Monday 19 December 2011, Olympia—The Thurston Diversity Council presented Occupy Olympia with an award for unique achievement in the area of human rights. Occupy Olympia accepted the award with dignity and grace, and gratitude. OO workers were glad to be recognized for the important work that has been done, and accomplishments that have been achieved. This may be just the beginning, and it was good for OO stalwarts to feel recognized for their hard-work and contribution to the field of human rights. Thank you to the Thurston Diversity Council!
Prior to the OO Human Rights Award, the Council presented Community Youth Services with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
