Reservations and Information
Freedom and dignity are not privileges; they are the birthright of every person. Justice and fairness are not ideals; they are the linchpins of a civilized society.
Unfortunately, those rights are not given to us freely. Unfortunately, they must be won by men and women of courage. Every day, all over the world, thousands of individuals – some of them famous, many more anonymous – exhibit extraordinary courage in the pursuit of our common birthright.
Since 1986, Human Rights First has presented its annual Human Rights Award to honor the work of these extraordinary individuals.
