Eighth Annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards
Friday, November 12
6:00pm – 10:00pm
The Muhammad Ali Center invites you to celebrate Greatness at the Eighth Annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards! This year will be unlike any other as we will, for the first time, be hosting the #AliAwards at the Muhammad Ali Center.
We know many of you, like us, are closely watching the Delta variant. At the Muhammad Ali Center, safety is our NUMBER ONE concern. Read about our Safety Measures HERE.
The Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards were created in 2013 as a way to publicly recognize and celebrate the greatness of people from around the world. This year’s awards are especially meaningful because, due to the pandemic, we had to cancel our 2020 awards. In addition, 2021 marks Muhammad Ali’s five year passing. It has been a difficult year with a looming global pandemic, civil and social unrest, and an increased polarization of America. But the awards remind us and bring awareness to the fact that many individuals around the world are following in Muhammad Ali’s footsteps by showing courage, selflessness, kindness, and compassion. When many might feel helpless and overwhelmed by social issues and inequities, our award recipients see “problems” as opportunities of empowerment on to achieve positive impact for their fellow humans.
This annual fundraising gala honors people who are making significant contributions toward securing peace, social justice, human rights, and/or social capital in their communities and on a global basis.
Each year, the Ali Center pays tribute to a number of high profile “seasoned humanitarians” who are named as Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awardees.
In addition, we honor six young adults, age 30 and under, who are serving as advocates, activists, and role models in ways that are ultimately transforming communities and bringing about positive change in the world. Each of these six winners are recognized for one of Muhammad Ali’s Six Core Principles: Confidence, Conviction, Dedication, Giving, Respect, and Spirituality.
Proceeds raised during the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards support educational initiatives, community programming, and on-site exhibitions.
For information about any of the past Awardees—including the “Six Core Principle” recipients, all 30 years or under—visit our Past Awards Information page.Read More >>
