Each year, the Human Rights Awards honors the inspiring individuals and organizations who create radical change and real democracy.

In 2014, we honored the 50 year Anniversary of the Freedom Schools, anti-GMO activist Mar����a Estela Barco Huerta, and the People’s Choice Award winner, the Cuban Five, determined by popular vote (learn more here).

Please check back in early 2015, for information about next year’s Human Rights Awards.

About the Human Rights Awards

Since our founding in 1988, we have partnered with individuals and organizations throughout the world to educate people about threats to political, economic, social and environmental justice and to activate individuals and communities to confront these problems effectively. With these annual awards, Global Exchange recognizes the contributions of individuals and organizations defending human rights in their own countries and around the world.
