      Raising Voices For Justice—Global Exchange's Sixth Annual Human
      Rights Awards
      Thu, Jun 1, 2006 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
      The Gift Center Pavilion
      888 Brannan Street
      San Francisco

      Buy your tickets today! (please RSVP by May 24th).
      TICKETS: $150 (ncludes dinner, drinks, dancing).

      This year we celebrate the work of:
      International Awardee — EDUARDO GALEANO
      Domestic Awardee — CINDY SHEEHAN (Gold Star Families for Peace)
      Community Builder Awardee — MALIK RAHIM

      • Eduardo Galeano has served as the conscience of the left in Latin
      America and an inspirational force behind the rise of progressive
      politics among its people. Considered "the single most important
      literary voice to come out of Latin America in the last decades,"
      Mr. Galeano has used the written word as a powerful advocacy
      mechanism to protect human and economic rights for the poor and
      express his discontent with the historical and contemporary
      exploitation of Latin America's people and land. A prolific
      journalist and author, he is best known for his novels Memoria del
      Fuego (Memory of Fire) and Las Venas Abiertas de America Latina (The
      Open Veins of Latin America).

      • Channeling their grief into action, Cindy Sheehan and Gold Star
      Families for Peace have galvanized the anti-war movement, demanding
      answers from Bush about the legitimacy of the war. Titled the "Rosa
      Parks of the anti-war movement" by Rev. Lennox Yearwood and referred
      to as "Peace Mom" by CNN, CBS and other media, Ms. Sheehan has
      become one of the most outspoken leaders of the peace movement and
      has succeeded in informing the public through mainstream media about
      an unwarranted war that has resulted in thousands of American and
      Iraqi deaths.

      • During the chaos of the storm and in the devastation that followed
      Hurricane Katrina, Malik Rahim demanded justice for those whose
      needs were entirely overlooked. He forced the media to recognize the
      failures of the government and the racial and social inequalities
      uncovered by the hurricane. In response to the ineffectiveness of
      local and national authorities, Mr. Rahim has become a leading
      organizer in rebuilding his community in New Orleans through the
      Common Ground Collective and Rebuild Green. His vision and plan
      include a grander future for the city rooted in justice, equality
      and environmental sustainability.
