Drawing upon the lessons of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, the mission of the Salem Award Foundation is to promote awareness, understanding and empathy in support of human rights, tolerance and social justice. We advance social change through educational programming, stewardship of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial as a place ofreflection, and by awarding and celebrating contemporary champions who embody our mission.

This section provides you with information about the Salem Award Foundation, its mission and history. It also includes biographies and photos of its Board of Directors and Advisory Board.
