New Americans are the heroes saving our democracy.
We’re here to honor them.

One night each year, the brightest, boldest leaders in our movement come together at the annual New American Hero Awards. Celebrating our movement’s work and supporting our fellow leaders, this event recognizes the democracy-saving efforts of people like us.
