Immigrant Liberty Awards

Each year, RMIAN organizes an event, the Immigrant Liberty Awards, that honors the outstanding contributions of immigrants and exceptional advocates in our community and celebrates our shared efforts in creating a more just society.

Next year's Immigrant Liberty Awards, themed "We All Belong," will be held on Friday, April 12, 2019, at the Seawell Ballroom in Denver. The event will feature a dinner, a silent & live auction, and the Immigrant Liberty Awards ceremony. Tickets for the 2019 event will go on sale in January. Awardees will be announced in December 2018.
