John “Kip” Laramie received the James B. Hunter Human Rights Award in Arlington, VA on Dec. 13, 2012. Laramie is a business owner who, in many ways, has dedicated his life to help others obtain shelter, a healthier life and second chances. He opened the Santa Fe Café in Rosslyn in 1988, and soon began giving away food to homeless in the neighborhood. Since then, he has worked tirelessly to increase services for the homeless. For the past several years, Laramie has served as head of the Homeless Services Committee of the Rosslyn BID. The James B. Hunter Human Rights Award is sponsored by the Arlington Human Rights Commission.
