Edward O’Brien Award

Human Rights Educators USA (HRE USA) has established the Edward O’Brien Human Rights Education Awards in memory of Ed O’Brien, pioneer human rights educator and valued member of HRE USA who died 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.

Nominations may be for:

  1. An individual who has made a significant contribution to human rights education in the United States
  2. An organization, institution, or program that has made an outstanding contribution to human rights education in the United States

One organization and one individual are awarded every year in November.

The deadline to submit nominations for the 2019 Edward O’Brien Award has now passed.
