The Jane Addams Peace Association was founded in 1948 "to foster a better understanding between the people of the world toward the end that wars may be avoided and a more lasting peace enjoyed." Since 1953 we have honored the outstanding children's books promoting peace and justice with the Jane Addams Children's Book Awards.
It is with broken hearts and hope for the future that JAPA announces the opening of the Judith Joseph Living Fund. Judith's love of books, children, literacy, peace and all things good, made this decision easy for us. We hope to honor Judith's life by using donated funds to bring delight to the world's children through our award winning books for decades to come.
Please share this information with all who were touched by this special woman we were fortunate enough to call her sister.
