The Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award for 2016 is to be awarded to Peter Tatchell on 31st October 2016, Committee Room 4A, House of Lords starting at 6.30pm.
Peter Tatchell has shown consistent dedication over many decades in promoting human and gay rights. He has been instrumental in helping to engender a greater understanding in the public mind of these important issues and help create the conditions to allow laws protecting minority groups to be implemented.
He has consistently been at the forefront of progressive movements from anti-apartheid to Palestinian rights, campaigning for nuclear disarmament and democratic reforms in the Middle East and campaigns against draconian anti-terror laws in the UK. In some instances he has exposed himself to violent attack but has never violently reacted himself.
He will speak about his work and his foundation’s work and there will be an opportunity to pose questions to him and meet informally after the presentation. The Gandhi Foundation looks forward to welcoming you at this exciting event. The event is free but if you wish to donate to the Gandhi Foundation you may do so via our web site www.gandhifoundation.org For more information please contact Omar Hayat on firstname.lastname@example.org
