Trumpeter Awards


Buy individual Trumpeter tickets here.

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 more than 40 years, the Trumpeter Award has recognized leaders who are not afraid to speak out for social justice and for the rights of consumers. NCL Trumpeter Award recipients are honored for their commitment to raising the voices of consumers and workers to ensure they are heard.
