Nominate a Truthdigger of the Week

There are newsmakers and then there are Truthdiggers -- inspirational people in the news who speak truth to power, break the story, blow the whistle or refuse to stand idly by in the face of injustice.

We're always on the lookout for new Truthdiggers to recognize, and we invite you to send us a nominee from the week’s news. If you hear of someone -- famous or obscure -- from the political or cultural arena who has been extraordinary in acting for social good, let us know by filling out the form below. Be sure to include links to relevant news stories about the nominee. You can also check out our gallery of Truthdiggers for inspiration.

We may use your name and the text you send in when we reveal the week's awardee. If you would prefer to remain anonymous or unquoted, please let us know in your submission.
