Interfaith Action of Central Texas - iACT says
Please join us for iACT’s 2015 Hope Awards gala celebrating “Forgiveness through Faith” on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.

Sponsorship & Tickets Now Available: http://ow.ly/KQHuk

We will honor Michael Morton, who was wrongfully convicted in 1987 in a Williamson County court for the brutal murder of his wife. His faith gave him the strength to endure hardship and the mercy to forgive.

We also will celebrate the generous spirit of Congregation Beth Israel, a long-time, active supporter of iACT's mission of cultivating peace and respect through interfaith dialogue, service and celebration.

Mr. Morton will be introduced by Sen. Rodney Ellis, author of the Michael Morton Act. Mr. Morton will share his inspiring story in a conversation with Texas Tribune Editor Evan Smith.

The Hope Awards celebration and fundraiser provides support for iACT’s outstanding community service programs.

Hands on Housing repairs the homes of impoverished seniors and people with disabilities.

iACT for Refugees provides basic educational assistance to newly arrived refugees from around the world.

The Red Bench interfaith dialogue program encourages meaningful conversations that matter.

Please join us for an evening of meaning and hope!
