Inscription.  Jody Williams, founding coordinator of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL), has spoken extensively on the problem of landmines and the movement to ban them. She worked with the ICBL to convince 121 countries to sign the Mine Ban Treaty (The United States refused to sign). Williams and the ICBL were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their work to ban and clear anti-personnel landmines.

Peace is not just the absence of war. It's a world with justice and equality. It's a world where the basic needs of the majority of the people on the planet are met.
 
Erected 2013 by Nobel Peace Laureate Project.
