Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Honouring human rights advocates in province

  • Print

The Manitoba Human Rights Commission and its partners -- the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties -- are looking for individuals and groups to be considered for the 2013 Human Rights Commitment Awards of Manitoba.

The award honours Manitoba individuals or groups who courageously contribute to the advancement of human dignity and the elimination of discrimination in the province, the human rights commission said in a news release.

The Sybil Shack Human Rights Youth Award recognizes exceptional young people (individuals or groups under 25 years of age) who work toward the promotion and protection of human rights either within Manitoba or abroad.

To nominate someone, include a contact person, their phone number and email address, the name of the nominee and a brief reason why they should be considered for either the commitment award or the youth award. Enclose any supporting articles, Facebook pages, websites and letters.

An independent panel will choose the recipients.

They'll be honoured at a reception in December celebrating International Human Rights Day.

Submit nominations to hrc@gov.mb.ca by Nov. 15.
