Nomination Letter Sent to Nobel Committee
Rep. Adam Schiff with 35 of his colleagues sent a letter to the Nobel Committee to nominate Pope Francis as the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. The letter, which was circulated to Members before His Holiness’ address to Congress, highlights the Pope’s commitment to peace, his leadership in taking on the challenges facing our planet, and his courageous stand for human rights, his pleas on behalf of refugees, and his condemnation of all genocides.
