With the United States election of 3 November just days away and race relations one of the biggest policy issues at stake, who better to ask where President Trump and Joe Biden's records stand on racial justice, or injustice, than one of the country's top civil rights crusaders?

Bryan Stevenson is the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), a US non-profit organization that has represented hundreds of people in the criminal justice system who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state prisons.

The Harvard University­trained lawyer has dedicated his life pursuing racial equality and standing up for the marginalized, including people on death row, minors prosecuted as adults, and people with mental illnesses.

Michael Knox, Chair of the US Peace Memorial Foundation, thanked Christine for her “ outstanding leadership and activism to end the Korean War and halt militarism on the Korean Peninsula. We applaud your tireless work to involve more women in peace building. Your efforts over the last two decades are greatly appreciated in the U.S. and around the world. Thank you for your service.”

In response to her selection, Ms. Ahn commented, “On behalf of Women Cross DMZ and all the courageous women who are working to end the Korean War, thank you for this tremendous honor. It is especially significant to receive this award in the 70th anniversary of the Korean War ‐ a war that claimed four million lives, destroyed 80 percent of North Korean cities, separated millions of Korean families, and still divides the Korean people by the De-militarized Zone (DMZ), which in reality is among the most militarized borders in the world.”
