Inaugural International Peace Honors - Register to watch for free!

 
A select group of international personalities will join the inaugural International Peace Honors, presented by PeaceTech Lab, which will celebrate the most prominent world leaders and change-agents of our time, whose common goal is to build a more just and equitable future. With much of our world undergoing natural, political, and social upheaval, we are also witnessing unprecedented movements of social change, as leaders from many disciplines work to advance humanity and our planet. On January 17th, the International Peace Honors will recognize some of these leaders, who have helped tackle the biggest challenges of 2020 and inspire hope for a brighter future.

This year's honorees, two of which are recognized on TIME’S 2020 list of the 100 Most Influential People, include: Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Amazonian Chief Raoni Metuktire, leader of the Kayapó people in Brazil; Opal Tometi, co-founder of Black Lives Matter; singer-songwriter and activist Ricky Martin; the “Father of the Internet,” Vint Cerf; and prominent Venezuelan singer-songwriter and humanitarian Ricardo Montaner, who will be named Ambassador of Peace, for his continued support of the PeaceTech Lab mission.

Basketball icon Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors also joins the International Peace Honors to present the medal of honor to Dr. Anthony Fauci. 

Industry staple Eva Longoria will make a special appearance during the International Peace Honors to present an award to her friend Ricky Martin. 

Also gracing the awards ceremony is Laura Pausini, who will perform "Io Si," the theme song for The Life Ahead, available on Netflix, with music by Diane Warren (eleven-time Oscar® nominee and winner of the GRAMMY®, Emmy® and Golden Globe Awards®) and lyrics by Diane Warren, Laura Pausini and Niccolo Agliardi. The film, starring Sofía Loren, has marked a milestone in the career of the Italian diva, with a powerful message of acceptance, tolerance, and diversity, which is so necessary at this time.
