VBHRC Awards Programs

Since 1993, the Virginia Beach Human Rights Commission has presented Human Rights Awards, annually, to honor individuals and groups who have demonstrated a commitment to the promotion of respect and understanding among people with  diverse backgrounds. This recognition program gives the community an opportunity to nominate individuals, community groups, organizations, and businesses for meritorious service in the pursuit of cultural diversity and advocacy of human rights for all. 

The awards committee evaluates nominees based on community involvement, initiatives and humanitarianism. Eligible nominees are people living or working in Virginia Beach or anyone who has contributed to the promotion of human rights to benefit Virginia Beach residents​.

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Annual Human Rights Awards Ceremony was cancelled. In its place, the Virginia Beach Human Rights Commission created a video to give some insight on what human rights means to members of the Commission. The video was released on December 10th in celebration of Human Rights Day 2020.
