27th Annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner

October 19 @ 6:00 pm 10:00 pm

The Southern Center for Human Rights returns to Washington, DC, on Thursday, October 19th, for our annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner! Join us at 6:00 pm ET at the Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel as we celebrate this year’s honorees, Ruth Friedman, former SCHR attorney and Director of the Federal Capital Habeas Project, and Earlonne Woods and Nigel Poor, co-creators of the award-winning podcast Ear Hustle, which features stories of the daily realities of life inside San Quentin State Prison and people’s experiences after release from incarceration.

We will also take a moment to remember and celebrate the life of Professor Charles J. Ogletree, Jr. led by former President and Senior Counsel Stephen B. Bright.

The Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner is SCHR’s flagship gala to recognize and celebrate those who demonstrate exceptional courage and tenacity in defending human rights and equal justice. This gala allows us to illuminate allies who share our vision and commitment to a more just society. Proceeds from the Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner support SCHR’s work to protect the civil and human rights of people ensnared by the criminal legal system.
