Representative Barney Frank currently serves as ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee. He has represented Massachusetts’ 4th Congressional District since 1980. As chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services from 2007-2011, he advanced the most important and badly needed overhaul of consumer protection and financial regulatory law in decades. The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau created by the law, in particular, is essential to helping all Americans—particularly those in communities of color—to rebuild and move forward after the devastation of the nation’s housing crisis. Frank has long been a champion of the civil and human rights community on issues ranging from immigration, gay rights, civil liberties, economic justice, and fair housing.
Janet Murguía is the president and CEO of the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States. She is a national leader on issues ranging from immigration reform to fair housing to education equity. Hailing from Kansas City, Kansas, Murguía worked as a staffer in Congress and then in the Clinton White House before joining NCLR in 2005. In her time at NCLR, Murguía has focused on promoting fair, accurate, and balanced portrayals of Latinos in the entertainment industry, working with corporate America to advance diversity in the workplace, developing alliances with other civil and human rights organizations, and building Latino empowerment through civic engagement and voting.
   

Remembering the Legacy of Hubert H. Humphrey

HHH

Hubert H. Humphrey’s clarion call to the 1948 Democratic National Convention in which he urged the United States to “walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights” helped ignite the modern civil and human rights movement.

Humphrey is remembered and honored as one of the finest civil and human rights champions the United States has ever produced. Humphrey’s deep commitment and lifelong dedication to social justice made an indelible mark on American law and society, from his tenure as mayor of Minneapolis in the late 1940s, where he fought bigotry in all its forms, and his 22 years in the U.S. Senate, where he played a critical role in the passage of dozens of laws, most notably the 1964 Civil Rights Act, to his term as vice president of the United States.

As a testament to his remarkable life and career, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights established the Hubert H. Humphrey Civil and Human Rights Award in 1977. Humphrey believed that the civil and human rights movement is “one continuous struggle” that we must continue if “we are to maintain a free society.” Over one hundred years after his birth, the movement marches on and Humphrey’s legacy remains as essential and as powerful as ever.
