CLEVELAND – Phil Donahue will return to his home town of Cleveland on Sunday, September 14 to receive the Howard M. Metzenbaum Ohio Citizen Action Award. The event, which will take place at 7:00 p.m. at The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, will include a viewing of Donahue's stirring documentary Body of War and a question and answer session with Donahue.

Body of War follows the story of Tomas Young, a 25 year-old U.S. soldier who was wounded and paralyzed after serving less than a week in Iraq. Phil Donahue produced and directed the documentary, and is currently touring the country in support of his film. Donahue began his broadcast career at Cleveland's NBC affiliate and launched his audience participation television talk show in Dayton in 1967. The show, which was honored with 20 daytime EMMY awards, ran for 29 years and changed the face of daytime television.

The Metzenbaum Award is the highest honor given by Ohio Citizen Action, the state's largest environmental organization. Since 1995 the award has been presented to Ohioans who best reflect Senator Metzenbaum's example of principled tenacity. This year's award will be presented by Senator Metzenbaum's daughter, Susan Hyatt.

The event is open to the public. Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for students, seniors and veterans. Tickets and sponsorships are available for purchase online with a credit card at www.ohiocitizen.org, by phone at 216.861.5200, or by mail at 614 W. Superior Ave., Suite 1200, Cleveland OH 44113, attention: Metzenbaum Award. Checks can be made payable to Ohio Citizen Action, and a name, address, and telephone number should accompany any checks sent by mail. Tickets may be purchased at the door as available.


Ohio Citizen Action, the state’s largest environmental organization, has practiced door-to-door democracy across Ohio since 1975. The organization is known for its pioneering roles in passing toxic chemical right-to-know laws and in developing “good neighbor campaigns,” which use the power of community organizing to convince major industries to prevent pollution at their facilities. Ohio Citizen Action's Money in Politics project has been, since 1994, the authoritative source for data and analysis of the role of big money in Ohio politics.

Founded in 1882, The Cleveland Institute of Art is an independent college of art and design committed to leadership and vision in all forms of visual arts education. The Institute makes enduring contributions to education and extends its programs to the public through gallery exhibits, lectures, a continuing education program and The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, an art and independent film program.

The Cleveland Institute of Art is located at 11141 East Boulevard. For directions or other information, please visit www.cia.edu or call 216.421.7407.
