2012 ALBA-Puffin International Award for Human Rights Activism

 

About the Award:

The Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives and the Puffin Foundation invite nominations for the ALBA-Puffin International Award for Human Rights Activism.  The Award is granted on an annual basis to individuals or organizations whose work has had an exceptionally positive impact on the advancement and/or defense of human rights.

The Activism Award was established in 2011 to honor the International Brigades and all those who fought against fascism during the Spanish Civil War by connecting that legacy with international activist causes today, in particular the defense of human rights.

The Award will be presented at an official ceremony in New York in the spring of 2012.  A $100,000 cash award will be given to the laureate individual or organization to support his/her ongoing work on the area of Human Rights Activism.
