Introducing The Albie Awards -


The Clooney Foundation for Justice is proud to announce our inaugural ‘Albie Awards’ for a unique group of people across the world whose relentless fight for justice has put their lives at risk.

The Albie Awards, named in honor of Justice Albie Sachs, who is revered for his heroic commitment to ending apartheid and whom we are honoring with a lifetime achievement award, will shine a spotlight on the role each one of them is playing in their fight for press freedom, democracy, women’s rights, and accountability for atrocity crimes.
