|The International Rescue Committee first bestowed the Freedom Award for extraordinary contributions to the cause of refugees and human freedom in 1957. Now, in our 75th year, we continue to celebrate freedom. It is the core of our mission: “From Harm to Home.” People everywhere strive for it. It’s a universal aspiration. Yet it can evoke very different meanings around the world. We are asking people to tell us how they understand freedom. Please comment and sketch what freedom means to you. Share your thoughts and read what others around the world have to say.|
