Our Annual Awards Dinner honors the courage and achievements of those who have dedicated themselves to human freedom. The centerpiece of the evening is the presentation of the Freedom Award, an acknowledgment begun by Freedom House in 1943 to extol recipients’ invaluable contribution to the cause of freedom and democracy. Prior Freedom Award honorees include Aung San Suu Kyi, Vaclav Havel, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Medgar Evers, and Edward R. Murrow.
