Since 1963, The Brotherhood Sisterhood Awards annually recognizes two outstanding individuals in the greater Baton Rouge community who have devoted their professional, philanthropic, and volunteer capacities to humanitarian service in advancing the mission of joining hands across racial, socioeconomic, ethnic, and religious lines. The honorees of the Brotherhood Sisterhood Award have and/or are working to break down the barriers that divide the community and prevent its citizens from working and living together in harmony.
In 2018, Pass the Torch was introduced to the community. This award recognizes one young adult (ages 18-24) who exemplifies the mission of the Brotherhood Sisterhood Awards, which is to honor those individuals who have and/or are working towards the elimination of bias, bigotry and racism across ethnic gender, and religious lines in the community.
The Brotherhood Sisterhood committee consists of Philanthropic Leaders, Community Leaders, and Past Honorees. Nominations will be accepted through Monday, November 13, 2023, at 5 p.m. Honorees will be selected soon after nominations close.
