Ginetta Sagan Fund-Amnesty International USA

The Ginetta Sagan Fund of Amnesty International USA is to recognizes and assists women who are working to protect the liberty and lives of women and children in areas where human rights violations are widespread. The Ginetta Sagan Award recognizes individual accomplishment, but also serves as a beacon of hope to women everywhere who are fighting for human rights.

The Ginetta Sagan Fund of AIUSA is now accepting nominations for its 2010 Annual Award for the Human Rights of Women and Children. We invite Amnesty International membership, organizations and individuals to take part in nominating an outstanding woman for this coveted award. This is your opportunity to shed light on human rights abuses around the world and honor the women that promote human dignity.
The Award:
  • Recognizes outstanding achievement, often at great personal risk.
  • Enhances the recipient's ability to live and work freely, and protects the recipient's capacity to continue her work, by bringing a new level of international attention to her accomplishments and the obstacles she faces.
  • Brings increased international scrutiny to the crisis, region or issue for which the recipient works.
