Call for Nominations: The Edward O’Brien Human Rights Education Awards

Human Rights Educators USA (HRE USA) invites nominations for the 2022 Edward O’Brien Human Rights Education Awards. These awards were established in memory of Ed O’Brien, pioneer human right educator and valued member of HRE USA who died suddenly in 2015.

There are two awards annually. One recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to human rights education in the United States. The other honors an organization, institution, or program that has made a similarly outstanding contribution to human rights education in the United States.

The 2022 Edward O’Brien Human Rights Education Awards will be presented on International Human Rights Day, December 10, 2022.

Deadline for nominations is September 15, 2022. Nomination forms, a list of past winners, and a brief biography of Edward O’Brien is available on the HRE USA website at hreusa.org/projects/edward-obrien-award/. Please send inquiries and nominations to:
