Created in 1995, the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council's “Climate For Freedom” award is given to an organization in Concord or Carlisle to recognize that group’s special achievement in advancing human rights at the local level. In order to meet the criteria for the Climate For Freedom award, the organization must have made an outstanding contribution in at least one of the following areas: advocacy to protect the rights of a specially disadvantaged group or victims of a human rights crime; reaching out and including a minority group in its programs; promoting cross-cultural understanding; or, promoting understanding and accord between parties in conflict. 

We invite nominations from the community – if you have seen an organization or group that deserves recognition, please forward a nomination to the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council, P.O. Box 744, Concord MA 01742 or email info@cchumanrights.org

The winner will be announced at our annual Human Rights Day Breakfast.
