On Thursday, October 20, 2011 Dave Thomas received the Champion of Change award at the White House for his work in combating violence agaisnt women.
According to Thomas " I was both humbled and honored to receive a Champions of Change award along with 13 exceptional and deserving honorees. As I sat there and listened to the gripping stories of my fellow Champions it was clear to me that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. got it right when he said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
"We have come a long way, but there are still many victories to be won. Working together we can make justice a reality and make righteousness more than just a dream."
