Human Rights Award

Snohomish County Human Rights Commission is now accepting nominations for 2017 Human Rights Award.
The Snohomish County Human Rights Commission is committed to the full implementation of human rights and fundamental freedoms proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Universal Declaration for Cultural Diversity, which sets against inward-looking fundamentalism the prospect of a more open, creative, and democratic world. The Commission works to prevent segregation and fundamentalism which, in the name of cultural differences, would sanctify those differences and so counter the message of the Universal Declarations.

The Human Rights Awards recognize and celebrate the extraordinary contributions of individuals, organizations, and businesses in furthering the principles of the Universal Declarations of Human Rights and Cultural Diversity and fostering intercultural dialogue as a process contributing to the survival of humanity. We celebrate cultural diversity as the common heritage of humanity as necessary for humankind as biodiversity is for nature.

We are calling for nominations for people, organizations, and businesses that have made significant contributions to human rights in Snohomish County.

The best nominees are often the people who wouldn’t dream of putting themselves forward, which is why we encourage you to do it for them!

Nominations can be submitted under six categories; the Human Rights Award, Young People’s Award, Law Award, “Racism; It Stops With Me” Award, Community Organization Award, and Educator’s Award.
