Make Reservations Now for 2016 Peacemaker Awards Dinner

Join peace and justice activists from the southeast Texas area in our 2016 celebration of peacemakers! Our national peacemaker and keynote speaker will be Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sonia Nazario, author of bestseller Enrique’s Journey, a true story about a young Honduran boy’s search for his mother who left home to find work in the US to pay for food for her starving family. Local peacemakers will also receive awards. For more details on the dinner/celebration and the peacemakers, please see HPJC's 2016 awards dinner web page. Advance reservations are required. Tickets are now available for the dinner and celebration, and additional donations not only support the work of HPJC to promote peace and justice, but also allow us to invite activists of slender means who would not otherwise be able to attend.
