Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the first Indian-American woman to serve in the House of Representatives, received one of three inaugural GWI Champions for Justice awards. Other awardees were Brisa De Angulo, a Bolivian activist against sexual violence and founder of A Breeze of Hope, and Ana Lucía Álvarez, who accepted the award on behalf of Nicaraguan women political prisoners. GWI strives to advance gender equality through research, education and action to bring about change.

"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
