Every year in courtrooms and front-rooms, on front-pages, online and in the streets – some truly amazing people fight to protect our rights and freedoms. Challenging inequality and injustice and fighting for the rights of the many and the most vulnerable. Their work is more vital than ever and yet they often unrecognised.
The Liberty Human Rights Awards give us a unique opportunity to share their stories and shine a light on their remarkable achievements. To celebrate the hard-work, inspiration and dedication of those who champion the rights of ordinary people.
Previous winners have included families fighting for justice, courageous campaigners standing-up to power, journalists uncovering uncomfortable truths, young activists bringing about change and brilliant individuals who’ve spent their lives working to protect the rights and freedoms of others.
