Nonprofit accepting nominations for human rights award


The organization that presents the annual Salem Award for Human Rights and Social Justice is accepting nominations through Sept. 1 for people to be honored this year. The nonprofit Salem Award Foundation for Human Rights and Social Justice was established following the tercentenary of the Salem witch trials in 1992 to keep alive the lessons of that historic episode and to recognize, through its annual award, those who are speaking out and taking action to alleviate discrimination and promote tolerance today. Salem Mayor Kimberley L. Driscoll and Salem State University president Patricia Maguire Meservey serve as honorary cochairwomen of the foundation.
