Peace Awards Program
In today's climate, prominent figures in politics, media, and other influential platforms have increasingly found ways to incite fear, hate, and division. Meanwhile, we know that there are countless individuals working hard to inspire just the opposite – fostering inclusion, understanding, and collaboration in communities. We see leaders all over the country empowering others and building bridges with people of other faiths and origins in order to better serve and support our communities.
Now more than ever, the stories and insights of inclusive community leaders need to be heard, and their achievements in advancing social justice should be celebrated. At the El-Hibri Foundation, we work to amplify and support the voices, vision, and efforts of outstanding community builders who promote inclusion in all forms, foster collaboration across difference, and demonstrate leadership by building the capacity of others to make positive social change.
The El-Hibri Foundation is proud to offer three annual Peace Awards to dedicated and deserving community leaders in the following categories:
- Fearless Ally Award ($10,000)
- Community Builder Award ($10,000)
- El-Hibri Peace Education Prize ($40,000)
Each year, we seek nominations for community leaders who promote inclusion and collaboration across difference in their communities. Award winners are recognized at an annual ceremony in the fall in Washington, DC.
