Human Rights Watch: New ‘Promise Award’

November 11, 2017

Human Rights Watch announces the new ‘Promise Award’ commemorating Chris Cornell.

At the Voices for Justice Annual Dinner in Los Angeles, Human Rights Watched honored Chris Cornell and his song “The Promise” with the inaugural The Promise Award. OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Drew Brown performed the song in honor of Chris. The event raised a record-breaking $1.8 million to support the vital work of Human Rights Watch. Attendees heard reports from the field by our researchers working on the Rohingya crisis, the dire consequences of Duterte’s death squads in the Philippines, and juvenile justice reform in California and immigration in the US.
