In 2012, she received the Lifetime Achievement award from the United Association of Labor Educators.

Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist. Pete Seeger hailed him as “One of the finest singers and songwriters of our time.” He is the 2018 recipient of the Phil Ochs Award; also, the War Resisters League’s Peacemaker Award, given to Charlie and Odetta; the Sacco-Vanzetti Social Justice Award, nominated by Pete Seeger; and the Joe Hill Award. Like Elise, Charlie is a Wobblie and a founding member of AFM Local 1000.

Folk legend Peggy Seeger says, “If we had more Charlie Kings in the world I’d be less worried,” and Tom Paxton adds, “Luckily, we have him!”
