Encouraging nominations for the Award Martin McDonald MBE, Chair of CRC, said:
“The Good Relations Award recognises and highlights the excellent peace building work developed and delivered here. CRC is encouraging communities and organisations to identify the champions of good relations and reconciliation. It is important to acknowledge and celebrate the many efforts undertaken to create a more peaceful and reconciled society, in particular, the determination of people within and across our communities working for peace and good relations. This work includes promoting trust and interdependence, challenging sectarianism, racism and violence, supporting inter-cultural relations within our increasingly diverse society, and promoting conflict transformation.”
Last year, in 2019, the CRC Award recognised two women’s dedication to peace building and good relations education in rural areas. Marion Jamison from the organisation Reconciliation, Education and Community Training (REACT) based in Armagh, and Charmain Jones who comes from Portadown and works for Rural Community Network (RCN) had been working together, as well as individually, to contribute to positive good relations at local and regional level.
