Nominations are open until August 26th for the IJPC Bob Maxwell Peace Builder Award and the IJPC Youth Justice Award.

The IJPC Bob Maxwell Peace Builder Award was established in 2017 in honor of Robert “Bob” Maxwell who passed away in 2016 and who was a steadfast supporter of the work of IJPC. The Bob Maxwell Peace Builder Award recipients are distinguished by giving public witness to justice issues to bring about peace. They have contributed to building understanding, collaboration, and trust in Greater Cincinnati, while holding the belief that peace is possible.
