HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS Nominations are NOW OPEN for the 2017 Human Rights Awards! The deadline for nominations is Saturday, September 30 2017. Selections will be made by November 2017.


Ordinary citizens who work decade after decade for the human rights of the least among us deserve our recognition in the community. Please nominate someone for these awards. We can stand in solidarity with them when we recognize their efforts in our communities in Alberta.
Although this will not get government at all levels to do their jobs because it is easier for government not to change the system than to change the system, we do our part as citizens to recognize that change must happen and that these activists and advocates are the change that is happening in our communities in Alberta.
