Ann Frisch
Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping

Peace. On the surface it seems like such a simple concept. But if you ask Ann Frisch, you’ll quickly learn that there is a lot more to peace than meets the eye. A peace activist since the age of 16, the White Bear Lake resident was honored as a Rotary "Champion of Peace” at Rotary Day at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. Frisch is just one of six people in the world who is being honored in Geneva for actively working to build peace in our world. Frisch is specifically being honored for her efforts in unarmed civilian peacekeeping worldwide. She is the lone recipient of the award from the United States. Frisch, a United Nations delegate to Geneva, co-wrote the First manual on unarmed civilian protection, which was endorsed by the UN. Her training in a civilian-based peace process is administered by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, the department that trains all UN personnel.
