Highlights from the 2018 Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner

On October 23rd, the Southern Center for Human Rights hosted our 22nd Annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner at the Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel.

We were honored to present our 2018 Frederick Douglass Equal Justice Award to Virginia Sloan for championing justice with hopeful, fearless, brilliant, and passionate determination and our 2018 Frederick Douglass Human Rights Award to Jason Flom for his fierce and fearless advoacy for justice. Their efforts to advance equal justice and human rights light the path to a more just society.

Thank you to all who attended and supported this inspired evening. Your generous support makes SCHR's pursuit of justice possible!
