After much deliberation and careful consideration,
We have decided to postpone the Peacemaker Awards Dinner on April 18th, 2020 due to the COVID-19 global outbreak. While this decision comes with a heavy heart, please know that the work of the National Conflict Resolution Center isn’t slowing down. Our work is in more demand than ever. For many, our message of cohesion and peacemaking is the light shining its way through dark times. 

Although we will not be gathering in person in April, we know that each of you acts as an ambassador of civility each and every day in your own lives. We still need you and appreciate you more than ever. 

We will keep you apprised of future plans for the Peacemaker Dinner as the pending public health issues play out.

Each year, the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC) honors individuals or organizations that have made a significant contribution to conflict resolution nationally and locally. This year we are pleased to honor the achievements of these great awardees:
