The Ohio Education Association recognizes achievements in human relations and related intercultural activities that impact children, communities, the educational process, and/or the United Education Profession by presenting the OEA Doris L. Allen — Human and Civil Rights Award.
Doris L. Allen, an OEA Human Relations Consultant, was killed December 1, 1974, in the crash of a TWA airliner while en route to Washington, D.C., to attend a Human Relations staff conference sponsored by NEA.
During her brief time on the OEA staff, she developed a handbook for local association human relations committees. She also developed an audio-visual presentation on human relations awareness, conducted human relations programs around Ohio, and served as a member of the OEA Racism Awareness Cadre. The OEA Minority Caucus was renamed the Doris L. Allen Minority Caucus in recognition of her contributions.
This Award symbolizes Allen’s contributions to the human relations programs within the education profession.
