2022 Peacemaker Awards Ceremony-Dinner

November 12 @ 5:00 pm 9:00 pm

Join other peace, justice, and environmental activists for our 2022 Peacemaker celebration, reception, awards ceremony, and dinner. We had only an online ceremony in 2020 and a limited in-person and online ceremony in 2021 because of the pandemic, but we’re looking forward to seeing all of you again in person this year.

We are especially excited about our national Peacemaker award recipient, Reuben Jonathan Miller, who will also give the keynote address for the dinner. Dr. Miller is a assistant professor of sociology at the University of Chicago Crown Family School and a Research Professor at the American Bar Foundation. His research examines how racialized and poor people experience law, crime control and social welfare policy. His first book, Halfway Home: Race, Punishment and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration is based on 15 years of research and practice with currently and formerly incarcerated men, women, their families, partners, and friends in Chicago, Detroit, and a number of cities across the United States. He was featured in a recent PBS Newshour special, “Searching for Justice: Life After Lockup (or watch it on YouTube) that focused on the difficulties that formerly incarcerated people face after they are released.

Read more about Dr Miller’s biography and research at the UC Crown School’s web site.

Watch Reuben Jonathan Miller’s TED Talk.

Our local Peacemaker Awards recipients for 2022 will be named this summer, so check back later to see who they are.

Our Peacemaker Awards Dinner is HPJC’s primary fundraiser for the year, and proceeds support Peace Camp Houston and our other activities.

Advance discount registration will be required, and will also be available online, probably in early August.
