An award in the name of racial equality campaigner Eva Hodgson has been launched by an antiracism charity.

The Dr Eva N Hodgson award was launched by CURB to mark the first anniversary of her death.

A CURB spokesman said: “The award is open to organisations, businesses, not-for-profit organisations, groups, communities, and individuals in Bermuda.”

He added the charity wanted to “highlight an individual and/or organisation in the Bermuda community that has advocated and continues to work toward the advancement of racial justice and equity”.

The spokesman said CURB was grateful for the support of Dr Hodgson’s family.

He added: “CURB has noted the increasing number of organisations, faith communities and groups that have launched efforts to bring about greater racial equity in their community in the past year.

“The launch of the award reflects CURB’s strongly held commitment to justice, equity and equality and the belief that organisations and individuals can become dynamic agents for social change in their communities.”

The spokesman said details of criteria, eligibility, and the submission process would be announced later.
