The Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center is seeking nominations for the 10th annual Peace Builder Awards Gala, held on Nov. 16.
The awards recognize community members and organizations that have contributed to peaceful conflict resolution within the past year.
“This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to often unrecognized people and programs that are working everyday to resolve conflict, promote dialogue and encourage peace in Whatcom County,” said Moonwater, WDRC’s executive director, in a press release.
Awards are given out in seven categories: health care, public servant, community member, volunteer, youth/student, education and program/organization/business.
Nomination and sponsorship forms are available online at www.whatcomdrc.org, and at the center’s office, 13 Prospect St., Suite 201 in downtown Bellingham.
The deadline is Sept. 14.
