Ammiano, D’Anne win awards

San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano received special recognition from San Francisco Tomorrow, a 37-year-old urban environmental group, at its annual awards ceremony earlier this month.

Also receiving recognition as an “Unsung Hero” was longtime activist and transgender woman Denise D’Anne.

Ammiano was presented with a special award at the May 16 event for his success in creating a health care access program for San Francisco, and for his many other legislative accomplishments that improve the life of city residents, according to a news release.

D’Anne was honored for establishing the first source reduction and comprehensive recycling programs in a city department. Her conservation program helped save hundreds of thousands of tax dollars and she is credited with changing perceptions and habits in the use of material resources in the workplace and the overall community.

Other awardees included Ann Meyer and Dr. Edgar Wayburn, for leading the campaign to establish the 80,000-acre Golden Gate National recreation Area on former military, park, and private lands in Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo counties; and Judy Irving, who was honored for her environmental films, including the “Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.”
