We're looking for a young person who is a strong advocate for civil liberties, someone who recognizes injustices and finds ways to correct them. This includes work on racial justice, free speech, free expression, LGBTQ issues, immigrants' rights, gender equality, religious freedom, government and technology privacy issues, and disability rights.
Anyone can nominate one – or more – young people. That means parents, teachers, guardians, religious leaders, advocacy groups, community leaders, another young person, and others may make a nomination. A young person may also submit their nomination.
