The Extraordinary Rendition Band

RIPR

Linda Finn and Henrietta White-Holder are the 2018 winners of the Sixth Annual Red Bandana Award, which honors people and organizations who embody the spirit and work of the late Richard Walton, a journalist, teacher and activist for peace, labor and social justice issues.

The annual Red Bandana awards event, which honors the legacy of social activist and journalist Richard Walton, drew a huge crowd yesterday to Nick-a-Nees in Providence’s Jewelry District for an afternoon of music, fellowship and honors.

Winners of the Red Bandana awards this year were given to Providence College Professor Eric Hirsh for his work with the homeless and to the workers at the Renaissance Hotel who have been organizing for a union.
