Call for Nominations for the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award 2017

February 8, 2017

2016 Human Rights Award Laureates: Andrea James and Glenn E. Martin (United States)

The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award invites nominations of human rights defenders who are leading efforts to secure dignity for all people, especially those who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to bringing justice and human rights to the people who need them the most, despite serious personal risk or sacrifice. Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights often forges strategic partnerships with the recipients of the Award and for this reason it is important to nominate someone who could find the support of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights useful. For last year’s award see: https://humanrightsdefenders.blog/2016/12/14/2016-rfk-human-rights-award-went-to-two-criminal-reform-advocates-in-the-usa/

Nominations must be submitted in English. An independent expert panel will select the recipient based on their dedication and accomplishments toward social justice and the non-violent and effective tactics used to achieve their goals. The deadline for submitting a nomination is 31 March 2017.
