The Arkansas Community Institute will give its fourth Community Truth Teller award to Wendell Griffen, a circuit judge and Baptist pastor.

The award will be given at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Darragh Center in the downtown library. He'll be honored for his work for peace and justice. Said a news release: "His words and deeds bear witness to his commitment to the proposition that justice is a verb."

Ernest Dumas, Bobby Roberts and Jean Gordon have been past winners.

The Community Institute works in the interest of low- and moderate-income citizens. Its programs have helped people receive tax credits, enroll in health coverage, obtain low-cost home mortgages and research negative impact on health of laws in Arkansas that favor landlords over tenants.

The public is invited to attend. To RSVP, call 501-376-7151 or email: nsealy@arkansascomm.org.
