Manitoba Human Rights Awards
Since 1989 the Manitoba Human Rights Commission has held an event to celebrate International Human Rights Day on December 10.
For the last several years, we have partnered with the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties to hold an awards evening. Each year awards are given to Manitobans who have made significant contributions to promoting respect for human rights and equality.
The award recipients are chosen by an independent Selection Committee made up of representatives from each of the partner organizations.
The Manitoba Human Rights Awards are open to the public.
This year's award recipients:
2019 Committment Award: Taja Lonstrup
2019 Sybil Shack Award: Oyindamola Alaka
2019 Aaron Berg Award: Sacha Paul
