Pax Christi USA is happy to announce the thirty nominees who were put forward as possible recipients of this year’s Pax Christi USA Teacher of Peace Award.

After a four-year hiatus of this annual award, Pax Christi USA will once again honor an outstanding peacemaker in the tradition of Sr. Thea Bowman, Dan Berrigan, Cesar Chávez, Dianna Ortiz, Dorothy Day, Ray East, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, and others. This award recognizes women and men whose lives and work exemplify the theme of Pope Paul VI’s World Day of Peace message, “To reach peace, teach peace.”
