The American Peace Award


"America did not invent human rights.
In a very real sense human rights invented America."

- Jimmy Carter

THE AMERICAN PEACE AWARD is awarded to an American citizen or citizens who best represent the spirit of world peace through their thoughts and actions. The Award will seek to pay homage to those people who have fought tirelessly to bring awareness to Peace and Justice.

As recorded in the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, The American Peace Award was first proposed in 1923 by Philadelphia philanthropist and Dutch born editor Edward W. Bok.

The American Peace Award is awarded by a group of artists, who will present each recipient with an original work of art to honor their efforts.
