FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
C. ABOUT THE US PEACE PRIZE
C.1 What is the purpose of the US Peace Prize?
The US Peace Memorial Foundation’s US Peace Prize recognizes the most outstanding Americans who have publicly opposed military solutions rather than diplomacy and global cooperation to solve international problems. Successful candidates will have taken a stand against military interventions such as invasion, occupation, production of weapons of mass destruction, use of weapons, threats of war, or other actions that threaten peace.
We hope to inspire others to speak out for peace and to work to end the hatred, ignorance, greed, and intolerance that lead to war by honoring courageous role models and leaders. You may read about previous recipients at https://www.uspeaceprize.org.
C.2 How can I nominate a candidate for the annual US Peace Prize?
1. Nominations are accepted from recipients of the US Peace Prize, people and organizations currently honored in the US Peace Registry, and Founding Members between January and the end of April each year.
2. Each qualified nominator may nominate one outstanding and deserving individual or organization per year. To be considered for the US Peace Prize, the nominee must: (a) be a U.S. Citizen, permanent resident, or organization; (b) have documented peace activities in the US Peace Registry; and (c) be active in antiwar/peace work within the 16 months prior to April 30 of the nomination year.
3. The US Peace Memorial Foundation’s Board of Directors makes the final decision for awarding the US Peace Prize. Information published in the US Peace Registry is the only data considered by the Board of Directors when making the selection. If you would like to nominate a person or organization not included in the US Peace Registry, please request that they submit their antiwar/peace activities for consideration by completing an Individual or Organization application form before April 30. Those already listed in the US Peace Registry should review and update their information by sending proposed changes and additions to Registry@USPeaceMemorial.org.
4. Please submit the name of your US Peace Prize nominee to info@USPeaceMemorial.org by April 30. Include your nominee’s contact information (email and/or phone number) so that we may directly notify the individual or organization of the nomination.
