ThinkProgress To Receive The Sidney Hillman Journalism Award Tonight

Most of the blogging crew are on our way up to New York City this morning, so expect lighter than usual posting on ThinkProgress today.

We’ll be receiving an award for journalism excellence from the Sidney Hillman Foundation at an event tonight at the Millenium Broadway Hotel in Manhattan. We’re extremely honored to join an esteemed company of award recipients, including Bill Moyers and the Writers Guild of America.

The festivities begin at 5:30 pm ET. If you’re interested, you can watch a webcast of the ceremony here.

We’ll be unveiling a short video at tonight’s event that helps explains what ThinkProgress is all about. We wanted to give our TP community a sneak preview. Check it out and let us know what you think:

And of course, we can’t say this enough — thank you for reading ThinkProgress.
