Final week to submit FOR Peace Awards nominations
Just a quick reminder that this is the final week to nominate an individual or organization working for peace — deadline this Sunday at midnight!
Each year, the Fellowship of Reconciliation awards three peace prizes — international, national, and local — to individuals or organizations whose commitment to peace, justice, and reconciliation is recognized as extraordinary.
There is no requirement that you or the nominee have any affiliation with FOR, so please share this announcement with your networks of peace and justice advocates!
Awards are made in three categories — you can browse the list of past winners to see who’s won before.
International Pfeffer Peace Award: Established in 1989 by Leo and Freda Pfeffer, the award honors an individual or organization working globally for peace and justice.
Martin Luther King Jr. Award: Established by FOR in 1979, the award recognizes a person or group working in the United States in the tradition of Reverend Dr. King’s nonviolent approach to transforming racial, social, and economic injustice.
Nyack-Area Peace Award: Established by FOR in 2006, the award honors an organization or individual involved in significant peace and justice work in the Nyack, New York area, where FOR’s national headquarters is located.
