Last night, I attended The Agape Foundation’s 40th Anniversary/5th Annual Peace Prize event in San Francisco with fellow Chamoru activists Angela Tennison & Jon Blas–representing a Chamoru activist group the three of us are involved in: Famoksaiyan.
Each year, Agape honors peacemakers in celebration of the U.N.-declared International Day of Peace.From opposing the Vietnam War to supporting nonviolent solutions in urban schools, The Agape Foundation has been at the forefront of social change for four decades. Agape’s financial and technical support has helped over 800 peace and social justice groups take root and thrive. Agape’s early support was crucial to hundreds of transformative organizations, including Amnesty International and the United Farm Workers, and today, Agape continues to foster critical new organizations.
This prize honors an innovative peacemaker who has undertaken the creation of peace in their community, nationally or internationally, and has been making a significant contribution for five years or less.
