DOMESTIC AWARDEE
The Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International (TASSC) was founded by Sister Dianna Ortiz, who died on February 19th. She was a survivor of torture in Guatemala. She spent nearly three decades advocating against torture and in doing so helped to create the unique survivor-centered model of healing that TASSC represents.

INTERNATIONAL AWARDEE
Since 1978, the Black Fraternal Organization of Honduras (OFRANEH) has served as the representative organization for and a leading voice in Honduras for the self-determination and dignity of the Garífuna people in Honduras, a matrilineal people who are both Indigenous and Afro-descendent, whose ancestral territory in Honduras is principally along the northern coast and under constant threat from African palm plantations, Canadian and U.S. tourist operations, mining, energy projects, and drug trafficking.
