The Beyond War Award        


click to enlarge
     The annual Beyond War Award for eight years (1983-1990) honored the great efforts of individuals, groups, and nations as humankind moves to build a world beyond war.
     The Beyond War Movement of the 1980s, based on the San Francisco Peninsula, had over 24,000 active members in twenty-three states and internationally, understanding that war had become obsolete and all conflicts must be resolved without violence.
     Volunteer citizen-educators hosted thousands of "Interest Evenings" and hundreds of "Orientation" meetings in living rooms and classrooms across the United States, and in Canada and Germany.
     The Beyond War legacy for the 21st century is demonstrated by innumerable citizen change agents who have birthed life-serving initiatives like the contemporary Beyond War, Beyond Words, Foundation for Global Community, Living Beyond War: A Citizen's Guide, and the Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue rooted in Beyond War and its principles.
