Another Recognition for the CIW


On February 15th the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives (ALBA) announced that it has chosen the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to receive its prestigious ALBA/Puffin Award for Human Rights Activism for 2018. For nearly forty years, ALBA has worked to educate the public about the brave volunteers including thousands of Americans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and their fight against fascism in Spain before World War II. As a vital part of their efforts to keep the spirit of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade alive, ALBA administers the annual award of one of the world's largest monetary prizes for human rights, helping fuel movements for justice and freedom around the world today.
