ABA Seeks Marshall Award Nominations


The Individual Rights and Responsibilities Section of the American Bar Association (ABA) seeks nominations for the 2007 Thurgood Marshall Award.


As a Supreme Court Justice, Marshall was a forceful and constant voice for the protection and advancement of individual rights in this country. The award is the only one that recognizes long-term contributions to the furtherance of civil rights, civil liberties and human rights in the United States.


For the 2007 award, the ABA is soliciting nominations of individuals who, through their unique talents and long-term contributions, have shown dedication and leadership in establishing and expanding civil and human rights. The deadline for nominations is Dec. 15, 2006.


Past recipients of this award include: Julius I. Chambers, former head of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (2006); the Hon. Abner J. Mikva, former White House counsel and chief judge, US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (2005); and Fred Gray, Alabama civil rights lawyer (2004).
