The Ann Klein Advocate Awards has been held each year since 1988 to honor Ann Klein, former Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Human Services, who was instrumental in establishing a community-based system of care for people with mental and physical disabilities. Past honorees have included legislators, scientists, advocates, corporate leaders, reporters, and entertainers. Past Masters of Ceremonies have included Governor Brendan Byrne, actress Olympia Dukakis, and former Attorney General Robert Del Tufo.
