The Clooney Foundation for Justice held its inaugural Albie Awards ceremony in New York City on Thursday, September 29.
The award, named after South African Justice Albie Sachs, aims to serve as a new platform that would “shine a protective light on the many courageous individuals who, at great personal risk, have devoted their lives to justice.”
Rappler CEO and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Maria Ressa was awarded with the Justice for Journalists Award.
Here are some photos from the event, including of major Hollywood celebrities in attendance:
