The Latest from NCL

550_trump_sd_2.jpg45 years of honoring pioneers in consumer and worker justice

The trumpet is not a quiet instrument. It is used to sound warnings, to mark celebrations, and to announce the presence of special people.

For 45 years, NCL's Trumpeter Award has recognized leaders who are not afraid to speak out for social justice and for the rights of consumers. Starting in 1973, with the presentation of the award to Senator Ted Kennedy, NCL has used the Trumpeter award to shine a spotlight on the consumer and worker advocates making a difference inside the Beltway and beyond.

On October 16, 2018, NCL will host the 45th annual Trumpeter Awards Reception and Dinner at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC.
