About the Gala

The RAGFP’s Peace Dove Gala 2021 recognizes that everyone is a peacebuilder. It is through all of our collective actions, big and small, that create a lasting impact on global peace. As a participant, you will be a part of a historic celebration united with a global community dedicated to collective peace action. Witness the energy and commitment to peace by joining our monumental occasion recognizing the global effort to making positive peace accessible to all. 

Who is a Peace Dove?

A RAGFP Peace Dove is a person or group who has demonstrated exceptional dedication to maximizing peacebuilding impact for communities most in need. They are peacebuilders with the unique combination of creative ideas, strategic use of resources, and wholehearted compassion to make peace accessible to the most vulnerable. Peace Doves go above and beyond to accomplish positive peace by enhancing the systems, structures, and attitudes that contribute to a community’s resilience to peace inequality manifested by conflict, oppression, or poverty. 

Peace Doves cultivate a peace mindset that transforms into peace action. The Peace Dove advances their creative ideas for peace by engaging, educating, and empowering communities worldwide to create a lasting impact for peace. The work of Peace Doves reminds us that Peace is Possible

Nominate a Rotarian, Rotoractor, Peace Fellow, Peacebuilder Club, or non-Rotarians Peacebuilder today who you believe embodies the spirit of a RAGFP Peace Dove. See the Nomination Criteria and Nomination Form below.
