The Óscar Romero Award

The biennial Óscar Romero Award recognizes courageous, grassroots, human rights advocacy. The award is named after Archbishop Óscar Romero of San Salvador, who was beatified in May 2015. 

The next Óscar Romero Award will take place in the fall of 2019 on the topic of climate change. In the weeks leading up to the award ceremony, the Rothko Chapel presents programs that investigate the perils of advocacy in the face of enormous economic and political pressures. All programs are free and take place at the Rothko Chapel, unless otherwise noted. Check back for event updates.
