This week, Open Society Foundations announced the 15 winners of its “Justice Rising Awards,” celebrating Black Leadership in racial justice work. OSI-Baltimore’s Tara Huffman and OSF’s Adam Culbreath led the effort to conceive the awards and identify awardees. Huffman, Culbreath, and several awardees discussed their purpose in a video on the Justice Rising Awards website, where you can also see video profiles of all 15 awardees, and in the Washington Post.
“It’s people who drive movements,” Culbreath says in the website video. “And so we have to think about the most effective ways to support those people.”
Among the awardees is Dustin Gibson, a Baltimore-based abolitionist advocating for disability justice.
