Salem Advocate for Social Justice

Presented in collaboration with Salem State University at the Speaker Series, The Advocate will be awarded to luminaries in their field who use their platform to champion social justice issues and advocate for the underrepresented. Recipients of this award draw attention to specific issues and provide much-needed support to enact social change. In doing so, they embrace the Salem Award Foundation’s mission to promote awareness, understanding and empathy in support of human rights, and social justice.
