About Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Awards

On September 21, 1976, agents of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet detonated a car bomb that killed IPS (Institute for Policy Studies) colleagues Orlando Letelier, a former Chilean diplomat and director of the Transnational Institute, and Ronni Karpen Moffitt, an IPS development associate, in Washington, DC. Following these assassinations, IPS established the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Awards to honor our fallen colleagues and recognize individuals and groups in the United States and elsewhere in the Americas most dedicated to the struggle for human rights.
