Human Rights Champions

Are you or someone you know putting in the work to advance human rights in Des Moines? We want to celebrate and uplift those that create a culture of inclusion, respect, and justice for all people in the Des Moines area.

If you or someone you know is doing this work in our community, the Des Moines Civil & Human Rights Commission encourages you to fill out a nomination form so that we can recognize them as a Human Rights Champion for their dedication to improving our community. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to
