CAHRO has a tradition of honoring people from communities throughout California who have been dedicated, inspiring and often unsung heroes in advancing positive intergroup relations and human rights.  These awards are nominated by communities and approved by the CAHRO Board of Directors for recognition at CAHRO statewide convenings.
