The RMHCPA Social Justice award is given to a recipient who has shown remarkable levels of advocacy in an effort to advance social justice causes in the Rocky Mountain region. Social justice is defined by RMHCPA, in part, as striving toward a world where everyone’s human rights and dignity are protected and respected. Recipients of this award may be active in politics, advocacy, activism, scholar-activism, and community work, and they often are involved in more than one of these arenas. RMHCPA recipients are those who have shown a dedication to equity and are notable for their attempts to open doors to those often excluded.
