A Cincinnati Council Member will be at the White House Wednesday afternoon to accept an award. 

Chris Seelbach is one of ten people being recognized this year as "Harvey Milk Champions of Change." 

“The award honors elected officials who champion equality and public service,” Seelbach said.  “And so I’m being honored for my attempts to make Cincinnati a place that more people feel welcome and respected.”

President Obama honored the late Harvey Milk in 2009 with America's highest civilian medal, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
