OBJECTIVES: 
 In every region of the world, there are men, women and children
whose rights are consistently and deliberately denied. In the face of
ostracism by their communities, the censure of their colleagues,
government retaliation, threats, harassment, persecution, isolation,
torture and death, there are people who are moved to act on behalf of
justice, to alert the world to human rights violations, and to work to
advance the cause of human rights within their countries. The Robert
F. Kennedy Human Rights Award seeks to identify and honor these 
people
who embody Robert Kennedy's belief in the power of individual efforts
to overcome injustice. 



ELIGIBILITY
 Persons working to promote and protect human rights of any race,
creed, religion, nationality, gender or sexual orientation are
eligible for the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award.  Those 
working
within their own country's social change process and who have worked
strategically and effectively to address serious human rights problems
are given the highest priority. 



FUNDING
 Each year, a total cash prize of U.S. $ 30,000 will be given to the
individual selected to receive the Award. While it is preferable that
one individual is given the award, if more than one recipient is
selected in a year, the cash prize will be divided equally among the
recipients. (cmb)
