The Karla Wahl Dedicated Advocacy Award

The Karla Wahl Dedicated Advocacy Award was established by Minnesota NELA in 2000 to honor the memory of Karla Wahl, a dedicated and loyal advocate of civil rights who worked tirelessly to protect and advance the rights of employees in this state. 

Karla was a true friend to NELA and its members and she is greatly missed by those who knew her and worked with her. The Karla Wahl Dedicated Advocacy Award recognizes those who continue her tradition of promoting employee rights.
