US Peace Memorial Foundation
APPLICATION FOR INDIVIDUALS
TO BE LISTED IN THE
The US Peace Memorial Foundation honors Americans who stand for peace by publishing the US Peace Registry, awarding the US Peace Prize, and fundraising for the US Peace Memorial in Washington, DC. We recognize thoughtful and courageous Americans and U.S. organizations that have taken a public stand against one or more U.S. wars or have devoted their time, energy, and other resources to finding peaceful solutions to international conflicts. We celebrate these role models to inspire other Americans to speak out against war and to work for peace. For details on our progress, read our 2020 Annual Report.
The specific examples of actions you list below are intended to provide ideas and guidance to others so that peace/antiwar behaviors can be replicated nationwide. This will help people feel more comfortable speaking out and lead to greater citizen involvement in antiwar activities. The US Peace Registry, including your listing, can be a valuable resource for peace scholars and practitioners engaged in research, teaching, action, and organization building. Americans who have written an antiwar letter to their representatives in Congress or published a Letter to the Editor are included, along with those who have devoted their lives to peace and opposing war, often through civil disobedience.
We look forward to reading some representative examples of your antiwar activities. Feel free to email Registry@USPeaceMemorial.org if you have any questions or concerns.
We do not want this to become an onerous task, or for you to feel that your listing must be comprehensive. Just include whatever antiwar information is readily available to you. You can send more details later to add additional actions to your listing. The US Peace Registry will always be a work in progress, and a listing can be updated or revised at any time.
