Russell M. Nelson Being Honored for Work With Civil Rights

By Pam

Russell M. Nelson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has been chosen to receive the Ghandi-King-Mandela Peace Prize.

According to Morehouse College who is presenting the award, “The honor is awarded “to a person who promotes peace and positive social transformation through nonviolent means.”  The board selected him “for his global efforts in ‘abandoning attitudes and actions of prejudice against any group of God’s children’ through nonviolent ways. The individuals use their global leadership to affirm peace, justice, diversity and pluralism.”
