Tribute to Justice

Monday September 9, 2013 @ 583 Park Avenue, NYC

The Charles Horman Truth Foundation brings together champions of justice whose efforts led to the detention and prosecution of coup leader Augusto Pinochet for crimes against humanity. This historic effort and the dynamic new legal doctrines which resulted, will be discussed at the afternoon panel discussions. Then join us for a Dinner Awards Ceremony honoring those who brought Pinochet to justice. Artists and activists whose work contributed to the exposure and investigation of Pinochet’s crimes over the years, and helped to foster a worldwide human rights movement, will present the Tribute to Justice awards to those being honored.
