About the freedom award

Since 1991, we have honored outstanding individuals 
who have worked to push the movement forward.
Their legacies have crossed color lines, cultural divisions and spanned across the globe. 

The fight for civil rights continues to shift and change, from marches for desegregation to
policy change for economic equity, criminal justice reform, voting rights, and more.
The premise remains the same: Equality and fairness for all.
