US Peace Memorial Foundation
US PEACE PRIZE NOMINATION PROCESS
US Peace Memorial Foundation awards the US Peace
Prize to recognize
and honor the most outstanding American antiwar leaders. These courageous people
and organizations have publicly opposed military interventions such as
invasion, occupation, production of weapons of mass destruction, use of
weapons, threats of war, or other actions that threaten peace. By honoring these and other courageous role models, we
hope to inspire more Americans to speak out for peace and to work to end the
hatred, ignorance, greed, and intolerance that lead to war.
1. Those qualified to make a nomination are previous recipients of the US
Peace Prize, people and
organizations currently honored in the US Peace Registry, and/or Founding Members of the US Peace
Memorial Foundation. Nominations
are accepted between
January and the end of April each year.
2. Each qualified nominator may nominate one outstanding and deserving individual or organization annually. To be considered for the US Peace Prize, the nominee must: (a) be a U.S. Citizen, permanent resident, or organization; (b) have up-to-date and documented peace activities in the US Peace Registry; and (c) be active in antiwar/peace work within the 16 months before April 30 of the nomination year.
3. 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 we may directly notify the individual or organization of the nomination.
4. 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 15. Nominees already listed in the US Peace Registry should
review and update their information by sending proposed changes and additions
