MORGANTOWN \u2014 Delegate Barbara Evans Fleischauer, D-Monongalia, and the Morgantown\/Monongalia County League of Women Voters will be recognized during Tuesday\u2019s Morgantown City Council meeting by the city\u2019s human rights commission.\r\nFleischauer was recently named the individual recipient and the league of women voters the group\/organization recipient of the Morgantown Human Rights Commission\u2019s annual awards, presented in conjunction with Human Rights Day, which was Dec. 10.\r\nJan Derry chairs the commission. She said both recipients are more than deserving of the recognition.\r\n\u201cDelegate Fleischauer is really looking out for the underdog,\u201d Derry said. \u201cWhen it comes to human rights, she\u2019s working diligently to help fight human trafficking, securing equal wages for women, equality in the court system and a number of other issues. She has been someone who has really fostered civil and human rights for our local community members.\u201d\r\nDerry went on to say that the league\u00a0 of women voters plays a critical role in keeping voters informed and engaged.\r\n\u201cThat\u2019s primarily why they were chosen. They\u2019ve been doing this a long time and they provide all sorts of community-based opportunities to inform voters and get out the vote,\u201d Derry said. \u201cThey\u2019re non-partisan and they work very hard to allow voters to make informed choices and decisions.\u201d\r\nFollowing the presentation of the awards, a program will be held at the Aull Center, located at 351 Spruce Street. The community is invited to the event, which will feature remarks from Meshea Poore, vice president for the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at WVU.\r\nDec. 10 marked the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.\r\nTweet @DominionPostWV.
