Father Robert F. Drinan 2013 Awards
The Father Robert F. Drinan National Peace and Human Rights Award was established in 2005 to honor Father Robert Drinan, the late Chairman of PeacePAC. The award is annually presented by Council for a Livable World/PeacePAC and the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation to individuals who exemplify Father Drinan’s commitment to peace and human justice.
“During his military career and tenure in the House of Representatives, Adm. Sestak has been a champion for a pragmatic foreign and national security policy that addresses America’s 21st century security threats,” said Jules Zacher of Philadelphia, a member of Council for a Livable World’s Board of Directors. “We’ve proudly supported Adm. Sestak in his previous House and Senate races and are excited to offer our support again.”
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of PeacePAC, an organization that believes in solutions to address our nation’s security threats with direct diplomacy and international pressure,” Strouse responded. “The people of Pennsylvania deserve an advocate in Washington that will stand up and seek solutions over division.”
Along with the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, the Council addressed a letter to President Barack Obama and Members of Congress concerning diplomacy with Iran.
