Media Advisory: 2017 Human Rights Award Ceremony

The Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Commission will present the annual Human Rights Award at a ceremony being held today (Thursday, December 7). The event begins at 2:45 p.m. with the award being presented at 3:00 p.m. at Government House in St. John's.

The 2017 Human Rights Award recognizes an individual who has made and/or continues to make a meaningful contribution to advancing and furthering human rights in the province. December 7 has been chosen as the date of presentation because it coincides with International Human Rights Day, which is held annually on December 10.
