23rd Annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner

Highlights from the 2019 Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner

On November 7th, the Southern Center for Human Rights hosted our 23rd Annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner at the Conrad Washington DC Hotel.

We were honored to present our 2019 Frederick Douglass Equal Justice Award to the Honorable Robert Reynolds “Renny” Cushing for his bold advocacy, tremendous compassion, and unshakable commitment to ending capital punishment and our 2019 Frederick Douglass Human Rights Award to Scott Budnick for raising awareness about criminal justice and creating solutions that help formerly incarcerated people live full, dignified, and joyous lives.

Your generous support helps us continue the fight for equality, dignity, and justice! Thank you for being a part of the solution to the problem of injustice.

We look forward to seeing you at next year's dinner!
