    ​This year's theme "Liberty, Justice and Human Rights for All" invokes U.S. history, the decades-long fight for equal rights and equal justice under law, and now a quest to define who is included in "justice for all".  The ARTHUR L. GREEN CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD, presented to an IAOHRA member for their lifelong advocacy of civil and human rights for the advancement of racial/social justice was awarded to former IDHR Director Rocco J. Claps.
