IARP Board Member Steve Clemens to Receive Hawkinson Foundation for Peace and Justice Honorary Award
The Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project is proud to announce that founding Board Member Steve Clemens will receive the 2012 Vincent L. Hawkinson Foundation for Peace and Justice Honorary Award. Now in its 24th year, the Hawkinson Foundation annually recognizes the contribution of one or more persons who have demonstrated a lifetime commitment to furthering human rights and advocacy for peace and justice in the world.
Clemens also serves on the board of Pax Christi Twin Cities Area and served as a member of the MN Peace Team during the Republican National Convention in 2008. In December 2002 he was part of the Iraq Peace Team that traveled to Iraq prior to the “shock and awe” bombing. In March 2011 Clemens traveled to Afghanistan to plant trees for peace with the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers.
