APPLICATION FOR INDIVIDUALS

Being considered for the

US PEACE REGISTRY

 

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 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 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.

List some specific examples of your public antiwar/peace behaviors and activities chronologically from oldest to most recent. The actions/behaviors listed under each record provide ideas and guidance for current and future generations. Before you start, please review some examples at www.uspeacememorial.org/Individuals.pdf.

 

Use only one sentence or sentence fragment for each antiwar activity. Give the location, then the date(s), or year(s) at the end of each action. Use behaviorally specific language (e.g., Wrote anti-Iraq war Letter to the Editor, published in the Toledo Blade, 03/07/04). Refrain from including your name again. Avoid analyses, narratives, and conclusions, and include available URLs that will give additional information about you and what you have done to oppose war. Please understand that the US Peace Memorial Foundation does not have the resources (volunteers) to extract the necessary information from narratives, websites, or CVs.

 

Unless a representative of the Foundation has asked you to complete this application, please provide at least one form of documentation (evidence) linking you to a specific antiwar/peace activity for every five entries you list. At least one piece of evidence must be included with short entries. Examples of documentation may include a publication reference, peace/antiwar website reference to you, a Letter to the Editor showing the name of the publication and date, a letter from a congressional representative acknowledging your antiwar position, a newspaper article mentioning you and your activity, etc. URLs are sufficient if they are available.

 

INCLUDE DIGITAL PHOTO (optional). We hope to add some photographs. Please forward a high-resolution digital headshot of yourself that we may use in the Registry, our website, social media, publications, emails, and/or releases. Note: Usable images are often in the range of 1 to 2 MB. A smartphone portrait photo sent “actual size” by email should work. The photo must be in the public domain and not require photo credit or attribution.

 

I have made the following tax-deductible contribution to the Foundation (A DONATION IS NOT REQUIRED): ___________.
