David Steinhart Wins Gerbode award

Posted November 21, 2012

David Stein­hart, the Juve­nile Jus­tice Pro­gram direc­tor for Boli­nas, the Cal­i­for­nia-based Com­mon­weal research insti­tute, is one of five recip­i­ents of the 2011 Ger­bode Pro­fes­sion­al Devel­op­ment Award. 

The award is giv­en annu­al­ly by the U.C. Berke­ley School of Social Wel­fare to non­prof­it pro­fes­sion­als whose out­stand­ing achieve­ments are high­ly regard­ed by their peers.” The award includes a $10,000 grant to fur­ther pro­fes­sion­al development. 

This came as a com­plete sur­prise,” said Stein­hart, who received his award dur­ing a lun­cheon at the U.C. Berke­ley cam­pus on May 4. It is real­ly a trib­ute to Com­mon­weal’s twen­ty year track record of juve­nile jus­tice advo­ca­cy and legal reform in California.”
The fel­low­ship is fund­ed by the San Fran­cis­co-based Wal­lace Alexan­der Ger­bode Foun­da­tion, which sup­ports a range of pro­gres­sive social, cul­tur­al, and arts orga­ni­za­tions in California.
