Benewah Human Rights Coalition wins civil rights award

A human rights organization in Benewah County has received this year’s Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations Civil Rights Award. The Benewah Human Rights Coalition was presented the award Monday night at the annual human rights banquet hosted by the task force in Coeur d’Alene.

Benewah coalition promotes tolerance

A fledgling human rights organization in Benewah County has formed with a goal of promoting better relations between members of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and nontribal residents. “If you live on the west side (of Benewah County), you see the benefits of the (tribal) medical facilities, the free transportation and the employment that they provide both tribal and nontribal members,” said Christina Crawford, president of the Benewah Human Rights Coalition, and a former county commissioner. “If you see the good parts and the positive aspects, you perhaps have a different attitude than if you don’t ever see them. Our hope is to be able to bridge the gap of inadequate information.”
