Imagine… a more peaceful world forged by peacemakers working across religions, across borders, and across differences. At Tanenbaum, we are committed to making this vision a reality. Tanenbaum is opening the nomination period for its Peacemaker in Action award, which recognizes religiously motivated men and women who put their lives at risk to advance peace in areas of armed conflict around the world. You have until November 30th to nominate an individual who is:
- Religiously motivated
- Working in an area of armed conflict
- At risk of violence or detention
- Relatively unknown
Awardees who are named a Tanenbaum Peacemaker in Action receive a cash prize to strengthen their work, but that is just the beginning. Tanenbaum also creates greater recognition of the Peacemaker’s work by promoting it to the public and producing an in-depth case study. New awardees also join an extraordinary group of their peers, becoming a member of Tanenbaum’s Peacemakers in Action Network. Tanenbaum periodically convenes the Network so that members can learn from each other, build a powerful community of peace-practitioners, and work together to impact conflict-torn communities around the world.
