ABOUT THE WOLA HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS

Every year, WOLA honors organizations or individuals who have worked tirelessly to promote human rights, democracy, and justice in Latin America. Our awardees are organizations or individuals who exemplify a commitment to WOLA’s vision for the future, where human rights and social justice are the foundation for public policy.

WOLA’s 2018 Human Rights Awards and Benefit Gala takes place at a time of monumental threats to human rights in the Americas. Now more than ever, it is critical to focus on the commitment and courage of those fighting for social justice.
