With Thanksgiving approaching, this is a good time for the Northfield area to consider those in the community who have served generously in the area of Human Rights. Each year, the Northfield Human Rights Commission gives an award to an individual, group, or organization that has contributed to the advancement of human rights. The award is presented during the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Community Celebration held in January.
The Northfield Human Rights Commission is actively soliciting nominees for this award. Community members are encouraged to think about those in the area who have contributed locally to the cause of human rights. A diverse slate of nominees is sought. The Northfield Human Rights Commission will evaluate all nominees, and is ultimately responsible for choosing the award recipient.
