On September 21, 1976, agents of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet detonated a car bomb that killed IPS colleagues Orlando Letelier, a former Chilean diplomat and director of the Institute’s Transnational Institute, and Ronni Karpen Moffitt, an IPS development associate, in Washington, DC. Each year in October, the Institute for Policy Studies hosts the annual human rights award in the names of Letelier and Moffitt to honor these fallen colleagues while celebrating new heroes of the human rights movement from the United States and the Americas.

2014 marks the 38th annual Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Awards ceremony.

Join IPS as we honor Robin Reineke, Colibrí Center for Human Rights in Tucson, AZ and the Mesoamerican Initiative of Women Human Rights Defenders. There will also be a special recognition award for lawyer, human rights activist, and UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Juan Méndez.
