The Liberator Awards were created to unite people from around the state who are working for the same cause: fighting human trafficking. They were also created with the hopes of highlighting the work of amazing individuals and groups. Everyone will tell you: this is hard stuff to do. We should diligently celebrate those who do it not because it is easy, but because it is right. The inspiration and namesake for this event is William Lloyd Garrison.
Nominations are submitted for the entire month of October. Nominees must reside or work in the state for which they are nominated. Who do you know that has worked to raise awareness, change laws, educate others, or help to stop this crime from happening in your state?
