Each year, in conjunction with international Conflict Resolution Day, Good Shepherd Mediation Program honors several individuals who have been instrumental in encouraging peace and social justice in Philadelphia and names them "Shepherds of Peace."

The dinner and awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street.

The honorees are:
