The award also will be going to the Rainbow Resource Centre, which runs programs for people in Manitoba who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or two-spirited

Students and young adults under the age of 25 will also be getting awards to recognize their contributions.

The awards were announced Thursday by the Manitoba Human Rights Commission, the Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties and the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

The ceremony is Dec. 6 at the United Way Building at 580 Main St. It starts at 6 p.m. and people who want to attend are asked to register online or call 204-945-5112.
