Nominations for Human Rights Hall of Fame Accepted Through Oct. 15

The Montgomery County Office of Human Rights (OHR) is accepting nominations for its Hall of Fame. Nominations should be individuals – either living or deceased – whose ongoing work, service and contributions have positively impacted human and civil rights in the County. The deadline for nominations is Thursday, Oct. 15. 

The Human Rights Hall of Fame honors individuals who have made great personal sacrifices in contributing to human and civil rights in the County, either as trailblazers of the past or as current light bearers in the struggle for human rights. The honorees will be recognized for their visionary leadership, outstanding achievements, and altruism on the road to eliminating discrimination and advancing human rights. 

A select number of nominees will be recommended for induction into the Hall of Fame by a panel of Hall of Fame members who will act as the selection committee. The virtual induction ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 6. 

The OHR Hall of Fame began in 2001 and is held every other year. More than 90 individuals have been inducted. For a nomination form or a list of inductees, visit the OHR website.
