Dear AFGE Leader,
I know you will be pleased and proud we are honoring Everett Kelley, National Secretary-Treasurer, AFGE, with the World Peace Prize, “Roving Ambassador for Peace."
The presentation ceremony will take place on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, 2:30—4:30 PM in the George Meany Room, AFL-CIO Headquarters, 815 16th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005.
Please RSVP Mr. Kelley’s office 202-639-6438.
To mark this special occasion, we are publishing an Honorific Journal. I am sure your Union/organization will want to participate in honoring this outstanding Labor leader by taking out an Ad demonstrating your solidarity, congratulations and warm message of support.
A Gold page is $3,000; a Silver page is $2,000; and a White page is $1,000. The deadline for submission is Friday, June 14, 2019. Ads should be Camera-Ready— in High Resolution, PDF format, non-cropped, no bleed, with fonts and images embedded. Pages are published in full color. The actual page size is 8.5 x 11.
I have the honor of being the Chief Judge of the World Peace Prize (headquartered in Seoul, South Korea). I was pleased to propose National Secretary-Treasurer Kelley for the World Peace Prize on the basis that if one dedicates one's life to solidarity and justice for working men and women, one is, indeed, working for peace, because as Pope John Paul II said, "peace is the fruit of solidarity."
I was delighted that our panel of International and Interfaith judges (representing all major world religious groups) agreed. I strongly believe that the Labor Movement should be recognized as powerfully contributing to world peace based on solidarity, equality, and justice. I am sure you agree. And I know President Richard L.Trumka, AFL-CIO, most certainly agrees, and he is very pleased we have connected Labor's "fight for social justice with the building of peace nationally and globally."
So, let's make this Honorific Journal a magnificent display of solidarity with The Great Man, Everett Kelley.
