The Workmen's Circle to Honor Father-and-Son Mark and Seth Rogen

Rights! Camera! Activism! The Workmen's Circle will present father and son Mark and Seth Rogen with the organization's Generation to Generation Activism Award at its Annual Benefit on December 2, 2019.

"From the moment we met Mark and Seth Rogen, we recognized the deep commitment they have to making this world a better place, not only through their words but their actions," said Ann Toback, Executive Director of the Workmen's Circle. The passing of activism from generation to generation is very much a part of our organization's DNA. If the Workmen's Circle's mission is to build a shenere un besere velt far ale- a better and more beautiful world for all-then Mark and Seth Rogen epitomize those words, and we could not be prouder than to present them with our Generation to Generation Activism Award."
