The Public Peace Prize is determined by the choices of people from around the world. Scroll down to see how you can help recognize Marie Dennis with this award. Thanks!
“Marie Dennis truly embodies the Gandhi quote ‘be the change you wish to see in the world’ in the way she humbly lives out her life, expressed in each interaction with another, in the way she raised six incredibly beautiful children, in her courage to ‘speak truth to power’ with respect and grace, and in her daily spiritual practice which anchors her profound commitment to peace. Many of us already try to emulate Marie’s goodness and commitment to peace—so if she could be recognized with the Public Peace Prize, she would inspire many more.” – Jean Stokan, Director of the Social Justice Team, Sisters of Mercy of the Americas
“Marie Dennis has shown a lifetime commitment to peace, worldwide peace.” – Freek Landmeter, PAX Netherlands
“Marie Dennis brings a spirituality to her approach to peacework that helps to connect people around the world – seeking to find common approaches to active nonviolence and peacemaking and to celebrate these.” – Pat Gaffney, Pax Christi UK
