Nominations for human rights award extended

The Baptist World Alliance (BWA) has extended the deadline for nominations for the 2017 Denton and Janice Lotz Human Rights Award. Nominations will close on January 20, 2017.

Any Baptist individual, church or organization can submit a nomination, and any Baptist is eligible to receive the award.

The award is intended to recognize and give visibility to men and women who have done outstanding work in defending and promoting human rights as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Persons may not make nominations on their own behalf.

The awardee will be announced at the March 2017 BWA Executive Committee meeting and the award presented during the Annual Gathering in July 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The nominations form may be downloaded here on the BWA website.
