Recognize excellent human rights work

The Human Rights Commission is seeking nominations for its annual Omar Bonderud Human Rights Award. This award is presented to an individual or organization that has made a significant contribution ensuring the rights of people in Bloomington. The award is named in honor of Omar Bonderud, who was the first chairperson of the Bloomington Human Rights Commission, formed in 1968.
