Our annual Peace Prize Event is held on the International Day of Peace, September 21st, this year’s theme is Santa Barbara Women Innovating Good Health and Wellbeing for the World.

The Peace Prize is given each year to an individual who has achieved worldwide impact in the service of peace in a way that is tangible and measurable to one or more of these goals:

  1. Peacemaking and advancing the cause of peace globally.
  2. Work to advance or defend the cause of human rights internationally.
  3. Advancements in developing nations such as: creating infrastructure, delivering supplies, building wells to achieve clean water, education opportunities, etc.
