The Thomas Merton Center is accepting nominations for the 2019 awards season! Every year we honor a local activist for their work towards peace and justice here at home with the New Person of the Year award in the summer. Last year we honored Casa San Jose’s Monica Ruiz. In the fall, we honor a nationally or internationally known activist or organization for their achievements in creating a more peaceful and just world. Last fall we were thrilled to honor the ArchCity Defenders. We’re making the call now to find who the 2019 awardees will be. Visit the link below to submit your suggestions. There are no limits to how many nominations you would like to submit. Let us know today!
