The SAFE Beacon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in raising public awareness about our endangered cultural heritage and the devastating consequences of the illicit antiquities trade, which fuels the looting of ancient sites and destroys our ultimate non-renewable resource: the intact evidence of our undiscovered past.
This year, SAFE/Saving Antiquities for Everyone will honor four exceptional men who use their law enforcement and legal expertise to passionately combat the illicit antiquities trade and fight to protect cultural heritage. They confront art thieves in their daily work as an attorney, a Federal Prosecutor, a Special Agent of Homeland Security, and a retired FBI agent working independently to protect antiquities.
