Honoring the fight against human suffering.

The Human Rights Committee at the University of Dayton established the Blessed Oscar Romero Human Rights Award in 2000. The award commemorates the ministry and martyrdom of the slain Salvadoran Archbishop and honors an individual or organization whose work has contributed significantly to the alleviation of the suffering of the human family. The award itself, a bronze statue of Monsignor Romero, is an original piece sculpted by Emily Trick ('00) and Brother Gary Marcinowski, S.M., of the University of Dayton's Department of Visual Arts.
