Orange Peace Award

Each year, Orange Community of Christ presents a Peace Award to a person or organization in the Orange community that has worked for peace and justice. The award includes a $5000 contribution towards the work of the individual or organization. 

Our annual Peace Award event is a celebration of all the organizations in Orange that work to make our community a more just and compassionate place. The day includes a community expo with booths from local non-profits that work for peace, an interfaith worship service, a keynote message from the award recipient, and community lunch. 

Previous recipients include:
