Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Do you know someone or know of an organization in the community that deserves to be recognized for their work making Racine County a more compassionate Community? If you do, NAMI Racine County wants to recognize them, so we created the Compassionate Community Award.

The Compassionate Community Award was created to recognize an individual or organization in the community exemplifying qualities of compassion and empathy in their work; either with individuals or within the context of the greater community. 

Nominees should meet the following criteria:

  • reside/operated in Racine County
  • demonstrate one or more of the values of a compassionate community by: meeting the needs of its inhabitants, prioritizing the well being of the community and by treating all people and living things with respect

The award will be given at the Night Out for NAMI annual fundraiser on May 15. The award recipient will receive 2 complimentary tickets to the event and will be expected to attend in-person to receive their award.

Nominations must be received by April 10.
