Rob DeBree & David O’Malley Award for Community Response to Hatred
In 1998, when an atrocious act of hatred struck Laramie, Wyoming, it fell to Rob DeBree and Dave O’Malley to investigate the case in the glare of the world’s media spotlight. Their courage to follow the evidence and shake off their own personal misconceptions about the LGBTQ community serves as an example for communities everywhere of standing up to bigotry and delivering justice and safety for everyone, regardless of difference. We honor their service by recognizing others who show the same integrity.
