Nominations are open for the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award 2020 to identify and honor those who embody Robert F. Kennedy’s belief that the power of individual moral courage can overcome injustice.
The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award identifies and honors those who embody Robert F. Kennedy’s belief that the power of individual moral courage can overcome injustice. Each year, we invite the public to nominate outstanding champions of moral courage who stand up to oppression, even at great personal risk, in the nonviolent pursuit of human rights.
Over the past 37 years, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award has recognized 38 outstanding activists and organizations from 30 countries. Honorees receive a cash prize of $30,000, but what sets this awards program apart is that they also receive ongoing support for their important work from RFK Human Rights—through strategic litigation, training and capacity-building, and advocacy before governments, international organizations, and other institutions.
Nominations are open till Feb 14, 2020.
