Nominations are open for the 2019 the Australian Human Rights Commission Awards that recognise and celebrate the extraordinary contributions of individuals, organisations and businesses.
The pinnacle of human rights recognition in Australia, the awards cover nine categories: the Human Rights Medal, the Young People’s Human Rights Medal, Law Award, Business Award, ‘Racism. It Stops With Me’ Award, Government Award, Community Organisation Award, Tony Fitzgerald Memorial Community Individual Award and the Media Award.
The EU Delegation to Australia presents the ‘Racism. It Stops With Me’ Award that recognises the contribution of an organisation or individual to reducing and preventing racism in Australia. Organisations can include community groups or businesses and they can be recognised for a range of anti-racism work including education and prevention.
In 2018, the winner was Nyadol Nyuon an Ethiopian-born lawyer passionate about social justice, human rights, social cohesion, race and media. Read more here.
The best nominees are often the people who wouldn’t dream of putting themselves forward, which is why we encourage you to do it for them!
Nominations close 29 July, 2019.
