The FCNL Justice Award recognizes members of Congress who have advanced policies to create a more just society and country, unapologetically recognizing the dignity of all people.
It is presented each year at FCNL’s Annual Meeting. The first Justice Award was awarded in 2020.
- 2022: Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK), for her work to honor the nation-to-nation relationship the federal government has with tribal nations and leadership in responding to the crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People.
- 2021: Rep. Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), for being a persistent champion of working families, and working to expand the Child Tax Credit as well as housing, child care, and paid family leave.
- 2020: Rep. Deb Haaland (NM-01) received FCNL’s first ever Justice Award for her commitment to end the crises of missing and murdered Indigenous women.
