Archbishop Desmond Tutu Endorses the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation for 2016 Nobel Peace Prize

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation is pleased to announce that Archbishop Desmond Tutu, past Nobel Peace Prize recipient, has endorsed the Foundation for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination is for their continued global efforts (since 1982) to abolish nuclear weapons.

David Krieger, president of the NAPF, upon hearing of the endorsement, said, “We’re thrilled that Archbishop Tutu has endorsed the foundation’s nomination for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. He is one of the great moral leaders of the world and his endorsement is very meaningful to us.

"We will of course continue to do all we can in pursuit of a more peaceful world free of nuclear weapons," Krieger said. "We seek this for the people of today, and also for those of the future, so that they may live in peaceful and just world.”

Concurrent with his nomination of NAPF, Archbishop Tutu also endorsed the Aegean Solidarity Movement and the Club of Rome, Dr. Herman Daly and Pope Francis.

Archbishop Tutu, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 and is a member of the NAPF's Advisory Council.

“What the nominations have in common is that they represent collective responses to the realities of globalization‚ finite resources and security," Tutu said. "They underscore the inter-dependent nature of our human family.”

Sandy Jones is the director of communications for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
