We are living in a time when the voices of sanity are desperately needed.

The people who have earned the Nobel Peace Prize have demonstrated that they can improve conditions in our world. They can make things better.

Many have been mocked and defamed in the process. Some have been imprisoned, or had their lives and the lives of their family members threatened. Some have survived assassination attempts. And in the end, they have prevailed.

They can tell you what it takes to face down insanity, oppression, barbarity.

The Nobel laureates agree on one thing: we will not have a sane and just world without respect for human rights.

Good people everywhere agree, and are helping to amplify the message.
