The WGS Center for Social Justice awarded the first Clyde C. Snow Social Justice Award on May 18, 2012 to Dr. Snow. In keeping with Dr. Snow’s legacy, this bi-annual award recognizes a person or group whose work supports survivors of human rights abuses, honors victims of atrocities, and advocates on behalf of communities in the pursuit of justice. In March of 2016, the Center for Social Justice will present the third Clyde C. Snow Social Justice Award and honor the memory, work, and mission of the exceptional Dr. Clyde Snow.
