This award recognizes people and organizations who have done the greatest work in championing human rights.
Alicia Keys has used her popularity as a musical artist to make a real impact in the United States and abroad. She founded Keep a Child Alive, which provides assistance to families impacted by HIV in Africa and India, and the We Are Here Movement, which seeks to mobilize youth to social action.
Indigenous Peoples fights to change the situation of native men, women, and children in Canada. These individuals remain among the most marginalized people in Canadian society due to decades of public apathy and silence. The group aims to break this silence and rally support for indigenous rights.
