True peace is not merely the absence of war, it is the presence of justice.

Jane Addams, revered as the ‘Mother of Social Work,’ dedicated her life to uplifting the marginalized and empowering communities.

In 1919, she founded the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and worked for many years to get the great powers to disarm and conclude peace agreements. She helped provide medical treatment to low-income families, education for children and adults, and facilitated social services and cultural events for the largely immigrant population of the neighborhood.

We raise a glass to Jane for her extraordinary actions, which enabled her to become the second woman in history to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
