Amnesty names Malala Yousafzai and Harry Belafonte as 2013 Ambassadors of Conscience

Amnesty International has just announced the two recipients of its Ambassador of Conscience Award for 2013.

Malala Yousafzai, even at the young age of 16, is a strong and inspiring advocate for equal access to education. She was shot and severely wounded last year by the Taliban in her native Pakistan, but that seems to have made her even stronger.

Entertainer Harry Belefonte is a lifelong advocate for humanitarian causes, which he has described as an "obligation to do more than just entertain."

Congratulations to these two very deserving individuals.
