This annual award is an opportunity for the Institute to recognize individuals for their service to civil and human rights causes around the world. It is the highest honor bestowed on an individual by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.

Courage, both moral and physical, in the face of great odds;
Humility;
Leadership by example; and
An established commitment to human-rights activities.
