Musician activists Guy and Candie Carawan will receive the ACLU-TN Lifetime Achievement Award for their devotion of more than fifty years to citizenship education, civil rights work and community organizing through the Highlander Center and other groups. Their lifelong integration of music with activism, including their introduction of “We Shall Overcome” to the civil rights movement, exemplifies the power of freedom of expression to promote justice and equality.

The "Support Student Safety Coalition," a group of former and current Nashville high school students who led a successful campaign for the adoption of a comprehensive anti-discrimination policy by the Metro Nashville School Board, is the recipient of this year’s Bill of Rights Award.
