Harkin receives national peace, human rights award
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Council for a Livable World, Council for a Livable World’s PeacePAC and the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation awarded the Father Robert F. Drinan National Peace and Human Rights Award to Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) and former Congressman Bob Edgar (D-PA). Rep. Edgar’s award was given posthumously and received by his wife, Merle Edgar.
“It is a pleasure to give this well-deserved award to Senator Harkin for his nearly four decades of work advocating for human rights in the U.S. Congress,” said Terry Lierman, the event chairman and member of Council for a Livable World and PeacePAC’s Boards of Directors. “Senator Harkin has been a tireless advocate and his retirement next year will leave a significant void in the halls of the Capitol.”
In selecting Sen. Harkin, the groups cited the Senator’s efforts to increase the health and wellness of all Americans, to improve the nation’s education system and tireless advocacy for working families. Moreover, the Senator was active on national security issues even before his first election to Congress.
