Peace Museum to Recognize Peace Heroes

Three local heroes and the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize winner will be recognized at a luncheon hosted by the Dayton International Peace Museum next week.

The luncheon is open to the public and will be held 11:30 a.m. Jan. 18 at the Dayton Art Institute, 456 Belmonte Park North.

Cost is $25 and reservations must be made by Jan. 15.

Those being recognized include community leader John Moore and peace advocate Rick Polhamus and House of the People, which is a local organization that provides support to Rwandan refugees, according to Bill Meers, the museum’s Member and Donor Liaison volunteer. The Peace Prize winner is the Organisation For the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which is an international organization headquartered in The Netherlands that focuses on eliminating chemical weapons in Syria and other countries.

Joseph Kunkel, a retired philosophy and ethics professor at the University of Dayton, will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon and will focus on the topic of “Chemical Weapon Inspectors as Peace Agents.”
