Formerly the Pete Suazo Social Justice Awards
In 2017, the University of Utah College of Social Work retired the Moving It Forward Social Justice Awards, formerly the Pete Suazo Social Justice Awards.
At the time the awards were established in 2002, there were few opportunities to publicly acknowledge the work and accomplishments of social justice leaders and advocates in our community. Since then, many organizations have created ways to formally recognize individuals, programs, and organizations dedicated working to advance social justice.
The College of Social Work will continue to informally support and celebrate Utah’s social justice advocates, and is confident the work of many dedicated people will continue to move our society forward toward equality.
