AHEPA FAMILY NEWS
NBA Veteran Kanter Presented with Human Rights Award
Enes Kanter, a professional basketball
player for the National Basketball
Association's Portland Trail Blazers,
received the 2021 AHEPA Human Rights
Award, April 30, 2021, announced
Supreme President George G. Horiates.
Supreme President Horiates and Past
Supreme Counselor Gregory Stamos
presented the award, a first for AHEPA,
to Kanter, who is of Turkish descent.
" It's an honor to accept the first Human
Rights award from @OrderOfAHEPA, "
Kanter wrote in a tweet. " This is a
huge step forward for building strong
bridges between Turkey and Greece.
Huge thanks to the Greek-American
community. "
Kanter has been an outspoken critic
of Turkish President Recep Tayyip
Erdogan and has shined a light on
human rights abuses and violations in
Turkey. As a result, Kanter and his family
have become targets of the
Turkish government. Kanter's
father, a political opponent of
Erdogan's, was imprisoned for
seven years.
" Enes Kanter's activism and
outspoken criticism of authoritarianism
in Turkey, to the point
where he is essentially an enemy
of his own country, makes him
one of the most important and
credible voices for justice and
human rights--not just in sports-but
in the global community, "
Horiates said. " He speaks for
the millions who cannot speak
out and advocates for a more
just Turkey, and in essence, a
more just world. We are proud to
present him with our inaugural
Human Rights Award. "

Horiates added his appreciation for
the length of time Kanter spent with
him to discuss human rights issues and
abuses in Turkey. According to Horiates,
Kanter discussed the imprisonment of
political adversaries, journalists, and
others targeted, harassed, and tortured
simply because of their ethnicity or
opposition to Erdogan.
Horiates also thanked Kanter for the
ease with which Kanter accommodated
AHEPA to reschedule the award presentation,
which was originally scheduled
last year but postponed due to the pandemic.
The
Utah Jazz selected Kanter, a center,
as the third overall pick in the 2011
NBA draft.
