GASLAND's Josh Fox to receive LennonOno Grant for Peace

On October 9th, John Lennon would have celebrated his 70th birthday.  His widow, Yoko Ono, will celebrate by bestowing the 2010 Lennon Ono Grant for Peace to four individuals who have been selected "based on their courage and commitment to peace, truth and human rights."

The LennonOne Grant for Peace was created to honor...John Lennon's dedication to peace and commitment to the preservation of human rights.  Created in 2002, this biennial award has always been given to two recipients.  On this special anniversary, however, Yoko Ono will present this award to four recipients:  Josh Fox for his documentary GASLAND; author, poet & activist Alice Walker; author Michael Pollan; and activist/advocate Barbara Kowalcyk.  For more information, click HERE.
