Sen. Barbara Mikulski nominates Fr. John Dear for Peace Prize

Posted by Ryan Hall

Today we learned that U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland has nominated Fr. John Dear for the Nobel Peace Prize. She has known and admired John for nearly twenty years. All of us at Pace e Bene congratulate John and thank Senator Mikulski for her support! 

“For over three decades, John has been a relentless advocate for nonviolence in a world sorely in need of transformation, healing, and a nonviolent shift,” says Ken Butigan, the director of Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, where John serves as outreach director.  “It’s a great experience working  with John everyday, where he is spreading the power of creative nonviolence and taking action for a better world.  We are moved by the fact that Senator Mikulski has recognized our friend and colleague’s ongoing work for change.”

John is currently working to organize Campaign Nonviolence, a week of nonviolent action across the United states and beyond against war, poverty, environmental destruction and the epidemic of violence September 20-27.
