One Hundred Living Peace Advocates & Activists: The second 50 nominations

Here is the rest of our list of 100 nominees for the MLK Peace & Social Justice Activist Team.  The qualities for which we were looking when assembling the list are the qualities that we view as inherent in peace: freedom, commitment, sacrifice, nonviolence, courage, justice, and integrity. The level of each quality varies across nominees, whose background, experiences, goals, successes, and failures also vary, of course. But they are all strivers — strivers for peace and justice. Please send us your views on our nominations and your own suggestions for who should be on the list.
