GLEE star JANE LYNCH and JUSTIN BIEBER's manager SCOOTER BRAUN were honored at a Hollywood gala on Monday (03Dec12) for their efforts in fighting for civil rights.
Meet The Parents director Jay Roach was also feted at the dinner held by The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California to celebrate the anniversary of America's Bill of Rights, which was written to protect citizens' rights to liberty.
Actresses Sophia Bush and Amber Riley, funnyman Will Ferrell and singers Usher and Carly Rae Jepsen all showed up to see the trio receive Bill of Rights Awards during the event at Los Angeles' Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
The ACLU trophies are handed to individuals who have carried out "extraordinary work to preserve civil liberties and equal rights".
Braun later took to his Twitter.com page to reflect on the tribute, writing, "Tonight I was honored by people I admire. In this world we all have a responsibility to each other. To stand up for each other. Never be a silent bystander. Speak out. Ignorance has no place (if) we raise our voices against it. ACLU, thank u (sic) for the night. Honored."
