FEA Human & Civil Rights Awards

FEA members recognize and honor individuals, students and organizations for their work in promoting human and civil rights....


The FEA Human and Civil Rights Committee is interested in learning about the people in your community who have made a difference! This HCR committee is requesting your nomination of individuals or groups whom you feel should be considered as recipients of the annual FEA Human & Civil Rights Awards.


Each year six awards are given out:

  • The Human & Civil Rights Award is presented to a person who has demonstrated support and promotion of diversity and social justice.
  • The Mary McLeod Bethune Human Relations in Education Award recognizes outstanding leadership in the promotion of human and civil rights. 
  • The Martin Luther King, Jr. Award honors the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As seen in the qualification’s listings, the purpose of this award is to recognize achievement in the areas of self-determination and civil rights.
  • The Cesar Chavez Action and Commitment Award recognizes outstanding leadership through engaging in activities which dignify workers and by making notable contributions to the labor movement.
  • FEA Service Award is presented to a FEA member, or a local affiliate, who has advanced the cause of human and civil rights.
  • The Andy Ford Lifetime Achievement Award is named in honor of the commitment and dedication former FEA president, Andy Ford, has exhibited throughout his lifetime on behalf of Florida’s students, public schools, and FEA members.

The winners will be honored during the FEA Delegate Assembly in October.
