The nominee’s activities should be devoted to the cause of racial equality, with special emphasis on Native Americans and people of color; to the autonomy of individuals, groups, families and communities; and/or to freedom of speech, expression and thought. The nominee should be someone who is not widely recognized outside their community, does not have a strong institutional base of support and who has demonstrated a capacity to grow, take risks, overcome obstacles and make a significant contribution by leading, teaching or otherwise helping others. Please note that nominations should be made by someone other than the nominee and without the knowledge of the nominee. Most Petra Fellows reside in the United States.
