The Peoria chapter of the ACLU has given the Freedom From Religion Foundation the Sam Belfer Award “for ongoing work protecting separation of church and state, as well as intervening in related issues that have arisen in the Peoria area.” 

Originally, FFRF Director of Strategic Response Andrew Seidel (pictured) had been scheduled to accept the award on behalf of FFRF at a speaking appearance there in spring 2020, but it was canceled due to the pandemic. The chapter recently mailed the award to FFRF, where it is proudly displayed in our lobby.
