About Us


US Peace Registry

US Peace Prize









The US Peace Memorial Foundation awards the US Peace Prize to recognize and honor the most outstanding and prominent American antiwar leaders. These courageous people and organizations have publicly championed peaceful solutions to international conflicts involving the U.S. and/or opposed U.S. war(s), militarism, and interventions including invasion, occupation, production and distribution of weapons of mass destruction, use of weapons, threats of war, or other hostile actions that endanger peace. We celebrate these extraordinary role models to inspire other Americans to speak out against war and work for peace.


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 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 make one nomination 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 antiwar/peace activities in the US Peace Registry; and (c) be active and prominent 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 30. Nominees already listed in the US Peace Registry should review and update their information by sending proposed changes and additions to Registry@USPeaceMemorial.org.
