Courage of Conscience Award

"Philosopher, humanitarian & environmentalist for the clarity and passion of his witness as a vegan physician & surgeon."

The prestigious Courage of Conscience Award by The Peace Abbey in Sherborn, MA. 

Throughout history, peace awards have served to bring attention to humanitarian causes & great works that otherwise go unnoticed. The increased visibility that awards provide translates into increased public attention & awareness.

And from “awareness” springs movements — the civil rights movement, the peace movement, the animal rights movement, & the movement to save the planet. Awards are many things to many people, but at heart, they constitute a testimony to the hopes, dreams, & actions that lie at the center of an individual’s commitment to a shared vision.

Other recipients of the Courage of Conscience Award include Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, Ram Dass, Rosa Parks, Muhammad Ali, John Lennon, Thich Nhat Hanh, Pete Seeger, Sting, Desmond Tutu, Maya Angelou, Benjamin Spock, & Patch Adams.
