NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR
2022 ROOFTOP CONSCIOUSNESS AWARD
DEADLINE: APRIL 30, 2022
Many Hands of Peace alumni fondly remember Ron Miller’s annual “House of Consciousness” talk which used the metaphor of a house to describe levels of consciousness regarding “the other” — from the basement (where dialogue is not possible) to the rooftop (where a person recognizes that despite our many differences we are all connected as one human family). Sadly, Ron passed away in 2011. To honor his memory, Hands of Peace established the Rooftop Consciousness Award to recognize outstanding alumni who exemplify this higher level of thinking about “the other” and demonstrates this level of consciousness in his/her daily life.
Hands of Peace annually recognizes those alumni with the Rooftop Consciousness Award who demonstrate through work and volunteerism that, despite our many differences, we are all connected as one human family. Hands of Peace staff, alumni, volunteers and alumni family members can nominate.
– Recipient must be an alum from the Hands of Peace program—all years are eligible
– Recipient must demonstrate an exceptional degree of expanded consciousness toward mutual recognition of others, i.e., awareness of the interconnectedness of all human beings, and respect for their basic dignity, as reflected by one or more of the following: career choice, volunteer work, commitment toward and involvement with Hands of Peace, above and beyond the norm, positive impact on relationships with peers, family, co-workers, others, and dedication to the goal of creating a more just and peaceful world.
