2019 SF Peacemaker Awards

Community Boards does not work alone. With the San Francisco Peacemaker Awards, we acknowledge and honor the significant and tireless contributions of others who make San Francisco a city of healthier, more just, and respectful neighborhoods and communities.

Community Boards salutes and celebrates change makers, community builders, anti-violence advocates, and on-the-ground peacemakers. The San Francisco Peacemaker Awards recognize individuals and organizations with proven track records and the next generation of “rising” peacemakers.

Please join us on Friday, June 14, at The City Club of San Francisco. We’ll be announcing benefit details in the very near future.
