The Initiative for Equal Rights is pleased to recognize and award the efforts of individuals and organizations in Human Rights Activism in Nigeria with The Freedom Awards 2021.
The Freedom Awards were created to honour individuals, organizations, agencies or brands who are working to create an equal society free from discrimination and marginalization. The first Freedom Awards and Gala event was held in 2019. It brought together individuals, organizations and other partners who work together and separately to champion the cause for equality and human rights in their various fields in Nigeria. It was a platform for connecting, networking and celebrating the successes made so far.
