Human Rights Commission Celebrates Greenfield Human Rights Award on Sunday, December 10
GREENFIELD - In honor of the 75th annual Human Rights Day, the Greenfield Human Rights Commission is reinstituting the Human Rights Award to recognize an individual in the community who exemplifies the commission's values, including promoting a positive community and uniting people together based on our similarities and differences.
“We are excited to bring this award ceremony back to our beautiful City of Greenfield,” said Greenfield Human Rights Commission Chair Mpress Bennu. “There are so many individuals who contribute to the positivity in our community, and this is a time to highlight their individual goodwill.”
The award ceremony will occur on Sunday, December 10, from 12:00 to 2:30 p.m. at the John Zon Community Center. Following welcoming remarks from local officials, the ceremony will feature live performances before the announcement of the award winner.
“There will be live entertainment speakers and refreshments,” said Bennu. “This is a family-friendly event and a wonderful way to bring us all together to celebrate Human Rights Day. As a commission, we will also be bringing forth new community panel discussions for all to be involved in starting next year. So please tell your friends and family to nominate their choices to receive the annual HRC award and I hope to see you all there on December 10!”
The HRC will accept the Human Rights Award nominations until Thursday, December 7, at 5 p.m. The HRC members will then vote anonymously to select an award winner. The winner will be recognized at the Human Rights Award ceremony and will have their name engraved on the HRC Award plaque at City Hall at a later date.
To qualify, all nominees must:
1. Be a Greenfield resident.
2. Must be 18 or older.
