About Jane Addams Peace Association - JAPA
The Jane Addams Peace Association (JAPA) has sponsored the Jane Addams Children's Book Award (JACBA) since 1953. Each year the JACBA is presented to the best children's literature that invites thought and discussion about peace, social justice , gender equity and world community. Award books have encouraged young readers to stretch their imaginations beyond their individual and family lives so they can face the world courageously and nonviolently. JAPA promotes the book award and encourages the use of award books in schools and libraries. "The Jane Addams Children's Book Award reflects the accomplishments of its namesake - a woman who struck at the roots of social injustice through astute, persistent, thoughtful action during the first decades of the twentieth century.... Firmly grounded in the Chicago immigrant neighborhood surrounding Hull House, the settlement house she founded with Ellen Gates Starr in 1899, Addams' vision went far beyond its boundaries. In 1915 she founded the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and in 1931 was the first woman from the Americas to receive the Nobel Peace Prize." (Susan C. Griffith and Donna Barkman, "Imagining Peace and Social Justice: The Jane Addams Children's Book Award," Book Links, March 2005)
