On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights will come together for the 42nd annual Hubert H. Humphrey Civil and Human Rights Award Dinner at the Washington Hilton.

The past year has marked a pivotal point in America’s civil rights history, with women’s rights, racial justice, and immigration occupying the center of battles to protect the victories of the past and win today’s fights for a better future.

We are pleased to announce this year’s honorees: Cecile Richards, lifelong activist and outgoing president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America; Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement and tireless advocate for all survivors of sexual violence; and Dreamers, the brave immigrant youth who are inspiring a country and leading their own movement for justice.

These honorees marshal the courage, hope, and integrity to make our values real. Through their strength and determination, they advocate for a vision of what America should and can be. We are proud to add their names to the roll of civil and human rights activists who continue to make this country as good as its ideals.

Join us Wednesday, May 16th, as we celebrate these courageous honorees.

The annual dinner is the year’s largest gathering of the civil and human rights community—noted for bringing together members of both houses of Congress, officials from the Executive Branch, civil and human rights leaders, business leaders, educators, attorneys, and young people representing the next generation of civil and human rights advocates. More than 1,200 people attend the dinner annually.
