Nominations Now Being Accepted for Human Rights Commission Awards

The Fairfax County Human Rights Commission is accepting nominations for its 27th annual Human Rights Awards. The awards will recognize nominees from three categories -- individuals, nonprofit organizations and businesses -- for outstanding accomplishments in the area of human rights in Fairfax County during 2003.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Feb. 27. Nominees for this award are selected on the basis of their contributions toward the achievement of equality in Fairfax County. Contributions may represent a single significant activity, long-term commitment displayed through various activities, or corporate equality programs of an extensive and outstanding nature. The 2003 award recipients, as well as recipients of previous years' awards, will be honored at a banquet in May.

For further information and nominations forms, write to the Human Rights Commission, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Suite 318, Fairfax, VA 22035-0093 or call 703-324-2953, TTY 703-324-2900 or send e-mail to michael.cash@fairfaxcounty.gov.

The Human Rights Commission was established in 1974 by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to eliminate discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, marital status, age or disability in the areas of housing, public accommodations, employment, private education and credit.
