Nominations are now being accepted for the Human Rights Commission’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day Human Rights Awards. Community members are encouraged to submit nominations by Dec. 18, 2023, for individuals and organizations from Fargo that do work embodying Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy.
Each year the Human Rights Commission, along with Fargo Mayor Dr. Tim Mahoney, formally recognizes the contributions of Fargo community members with three special awards to an individual adult, youth and business/nonprofit organization. The Human Rights Commission would particularly like to recognize those who promote acceptance and respect for diversity and help to eliminate discrimination. These awards serve to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts made by citizens to make our community a place in which all feel welcomed and valued.
