CHICAGO—Today, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot announced the winners of the 2022 Mayor’s Medal of Honor. The Mayor’s Medal of Honor is an annual award presented by the Mayor to honorees who have demonstrated a passionate commitment to public service, to uplifting residents of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods, and to bettering the lives of all who reside in the city. This year’s event is hosted in partnership with the Clayco and The One Chicago Fund.

“As the City continues to recover from this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic and its lingering impacts on residents, it is more important than ever that we highlight those who have supported their neighbors and communities through it all,” said Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot. “Chicago is a city of compassionate, hardworking residents and it is my privilege to honor those who have worked tirelessly to improve the lives of others.”

Together, and each in their own ways, these honorees truly embody the principle of leading by example, and centering equity as the guiding value of their work. The Mayor, along with the entire City of Chicago is deeply honored and humbled to have such selfless, talented, and civic-minded partners, and looks forward to the continuance of their outstanding work for years to come. A special ceremony honoring these incredible individuals, organizations, and collaboratives will be live streamed on April 26.
