REEBOK HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD PROGRAMME SEEKS NOMINATIONS
The Award seeks to shine a positive, international light on the awardees and to support their human rights work. Each recipient gets a US$ 50,000 grant from the Reebok Human Rights Foundation for the human rights organisation of their choice.
The Reebok Human Rights Award was established in 1988, and since then has provided support and encouragement to 76 young activists from 35 countries at a critical time in their advocacy work.
Organizations are encouraged to nominate human-rights activists 30 years old or younger. Candidates cannot advocate violence or belong to an organization that does so, and they must be working on an issue that directly relates to the UN's "Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
Past Reebok Award recipients have been recognised for their work on such issues as fighting for Native American land rights, protesting human rights abuses in Tibet, battling racial bias in the application of the death penalty in the United States, protecting children in Zambia from physical and sexual abuse, combating sex trafficking in South Asia, and exposing so-called "honour killings" in Jordan.
All interested individuals are encouraged to make nominations no later than 31 May 2004. Recipients will be selected by 1 December 2004.
