WOLA Human Rights Awards Ceremony & VIRTUAL Gala

Wednesday, September 22 8:00 p.m. EDT 

Please join us VIRTUALLY on September 22, 2021 to pay tribute to human rights leaders dedicated to advancing peace and social justice across the Americas. 

Since 2006, the WOLA Human Rights Award honors organizations or individuals who are courageous defenders of social justice and human rights in Latin America. 


About the Gala

This year, WOLA’s Human Rights Ceremony and Gala will be virtual because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the inequitable vaccine distribution that has hit Latin America especially hard. 
Our online tribute will bring a global audience together, beyond Washington D.C., to celebrate the tremendous work of our honorees in defending human rights, peace, and social justice.


By coming together, we can create a better tomorrow where peace and justice is accessible to all in the Americas. WOLA is paving the way for humane U.S. policies that advance social change in Latin America and the Caribbean, and your support plays a crucial role.
