  • The Clooney Foundation for Justice has announced an inaugural awards ceremony in honour of Justice Albie Sachs.
  • The Albie Awards will take place on 29 September at the New York Public Library.
  • "I take huge pleasure in working with Amal and George Clooney," Sachs said in a statement.






The Clooney Foundation for Justice, founded by Amal and George Clooney, has announced an inaugural awards ceremony in honour of Justice Albie Sachs.
The Albie Awards, in line with the Foundation's vision to highlight brave justice activism in several sectors across the globe, will take place on 29 September at the New York Public Library.
Not only have CFJ named the awards after South Africa's Justice Albie Sachs, who is revered for his heroic commitment to ending apartheid, but they will also award him with a Lifetime Achievement Award in Pursuit of Justice on the evening.
Other recipients at the 'Albie' will be the Nobel prize-winning Filipino journalist Maria Ressa who will receive the Justice for Journalists Award; iACT, a  groundbreaking international organisation that works alongside survivors of genocide and other mass atrocities, will receive the Justice for Survivors Award; Viasna, a human rights group that has been a voice of resistance in Belarus for nearly 30 years as it has led a brave campaign for freedom and democracy against President Lukashenko's regime, will receive The Justice for Democracy Defenders award; and Dr Josephine Kulea, the Kenyan women's rights campaigner and founder of the Samburu Girls Foundation that helps to rescue girls from child marriage, female genital mutilation, and other harmful practices received the Justice for Women Award.
The ceremony will be hosted by the Clooneys and Darren Walker, President of the Ford Foundation. 
Some of the biggest names in international human rights, philanthropy, law, business, and entertainment will be in attendance. They will include powerful stories of the Clooney Foundation for Justice's work fighting for survivors of human rights abuses.

'I am a living survivor of a generation of South African lawyers who gave their lives for freedom and justice'
Albert 'Albie' Louis Sachs is a South African activist, lawyer, writer, and a former judge appointed by Nelson Mandela to serve on the first Constitutional Court of South Africa. 
After twice being detained in South Africa for his anti-apartheid activities, in 1966, he went into exile and was later the victim of a car bombing executed by the South African security services. He lost his right arm and vision in one eye.
In 1990 Sachs returned to South Africa to help write the Constitution of South Africa and later served for fifteen years on the country's Constitutional Court.
"I take huge pleasure in working with Amal and George Clooney and getting to understand and appreciate their deep feeling for justice. I delight in their imaginative, creative ways of doing things and connecting with people," Sachs said in a statement. 
"I am a living survivor of a generation of South African lawyers like Griffiths Mxenge and Bram Fischer, who gave their lives for freedom and justice. I will be thinking of them when I receive this wonderful award alongside the other remarkable people and organisations."
