Five Social Justice Awards will be presented next month to changemakers who have made outstanding contributions to social justice, peace, civil rights, education, public health, and environmental justice.

This year’s ceremony, Toward Social Justice, will feature the distinguished keynote speaker Martin Luther King III, whose father delivered a lecture to an overflow crowd at Dartmouth Hall 60 years earlier.

“I am thrilled that Dr. King’s son, himself a tireless human rights activist, will be on hand this year to applaud the daily dedication and accomplishments of our Social Justice Award recipients,” says Shontay Delalue, senior vice president and senior diversity officer.

“The awardees are doing much-needed work for a number of important causes, ranging from support for migrant farmworkers in the Upper Valley to elevating a diversity of student voices in medicine.”

The event is free and open to the public, although tickets will be required. They are available through the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

You can also view the event virtually.
