In every community, there are educators who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to social justice issues, such as LGBTQ+ support and awareness, promoting equal opportunity and equity, and creating diverse educational programs. Does this describe you or a colleague you know?
CEA’s Human and Civil Rights Awards recognize educators who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of human and civil rights in their schools, in their communities, and beyond. Previous recipients have been honored for encouraging underrepresented students to pursue careers in education, formulating LGBTQ+ action strategies for inclusion and equity within their district, or fostering inclusion by ensuring school library collections more accurately reflect the diversity of staff and students.
CEA offers nine annual Human and Civil Rights awards in total, each recognizing specific efforts to promote racial and gender equity, LGBTQ+ rights, peace education and conflict resolution, multiculturalism through the arts, equal opportunities for students with disabilities, Black history, opportunities for Hispanic students, immigrants’ rights, and anti-discrimination in educational opportunities and hiring. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2024.
Help us shine a light on educators dedicated to making the world a better place. Nominate yourself or a colleague for one of CEA’s Human and Civil Rights Awards.
