“The greatness of humanity is not in being human, but in being humane.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Take part in the Human Rights Award People’s Choice Contest, and help us honor the human rights heroes who are making a difference – whether they’re in your neighborhood or halfway around the world! Join us in shining a spotlight on those unsung heroes working for peace, justice, and sustainability. 

It’s easy. Just log on to Global Exchange’s Human Rights Awards website, and nominate and vote for YOUR Human Rights Hero/Heroine. The last day to nominate and vote is March 19, 2012.

Your nominations and votes help determine who will win Global Exchange’s People’s Choice Award and take home $1,000 to use towards their important work.
