We have it on the best of authority that Thomas Moore has been nominated for the 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Medallion Award, to be presented Jan. 20 at the MLK Prayer Breakfast by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community Relations.

The award honors individuals for “their involvement in promoting the ideals of racial equality and social justice as espoused by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Such examples include: celebrating the worth of all human beings, pursuing equal rights by non-violent means, active involvement in community service, and/or encouraging people of diverse cultures to live together in a spirit of love and acceptance.”

If you agree that Thomas fits that description, take a couple of minutes to add your voice and your stories about Thomas to the nomination process.

And do it now. The deadline for nominations is Friday, Oct. 25.
