UN Day Awards Banquet

Greater Birmingham Chapter

Thursday, October 16, 2014
Location: At the Club Atop Red Mountain in the Ballroom, Birmingham, AL

The statewide observance of United Nations Day will bring together civic leaders, international educators, and outstanding students to engage in the discussion of events taken right from today’s headlines.

Honoree and Speaker

G. Douglas Jones, JD

As United States Attorney, Mr. Jones personally led the team of prosecutors and investigators in the re-opened case of the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. He served as lead trial attorney in the successful prosecutions of two former Ku Klux Klansmen for the murder of four young girls killed in the bombing.  He also coordinated the federal and state task force that led to the indictment of notorious fugitive Eric Robert Rudolph, who ultimately pled guilty to four terrorist bombings and is serving a life sentence. In recognition of his work in the area of civil rights, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute recently awarded Mr. Jones the 15th Anniversary Civil Rights Distinguished Service Award.
