The US Peace Memorial Foundation
honors Americans who stand for peace by publishing the US Peace Registry, awarding
the US Peace Prize, and raising funds to build 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 2022
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 activists, 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 and militarism, often through nonviolent civil disobedience.
We look forward to reading examples of your antiwar activities. Feel free to email Registry@USPeaceMemorial.org if you have any questions or concerns.
We want this to be a manageable
task. Please don’t feel your listing must be comprehensive;
include whatever antiwar information is readily available. As funding
permits, it is hoped that the US Peace Registry will always be a work in progress, and an approved
listing can be updated or revised as needed.
