Sache Primeaux-Shaw

An Advocate through her Words and Actions

Nominated by Priya Desai 

On December 10, 2016, Sache Primeaux-Shaw will be honored as one of the 2016 winners of the Oklahoma Human Rights Award.

Sache is very involved in her community. She manages to be present where injustices are occurring in the OKC Community and bringing voice and light to those issues. She is very involved in the non-profit and political sectors of the Oklahoma Community. She currently works as the Constituency Coordinator at Oklahomans For Criminal Justice Reform. She is also involved in Empowering Our Urban Girls, Ralph Ellison Foundation, and the Urban League.

Sache is a living example of advocating for human rights in her personal and professional life especially for members of the Northeast OKC Community. These members are often neglected or ignored. Sache's advocacy efforts for her community are unmatched in my opinion. She is a living, breathing example of what it means to be practicing and promoting human rights in her everyday life through words and action.

You're invited to attend the presentation of the 2016 Human Rights Awards on Saturday, December 10th, in the House Chamber of the Oklahoma State Capitol. The program will begin at 10am. It will be emcee'd by former State Representative Seneca Scott. There is no charge to attend. Following the awards program, you are invited to enjoy a Free Speech Forum in the Senate Assembly Room from 12 Noon to 2pm.

Every year, the Oklahoma Human Rights Awards are co-sponsored by the Oklahoma City chapter of the United Nations Association and the Oklahoma Universal Human Rights Alliance.

Previous winners of the award include educators, physicians, students, and community volunteers from many different communities and all walks of life. They are united by their enduring commitment to the values and principles expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
