The Civil Courage Prize® honors civil courage — steadfast resistance to evil at great personal risk — rather than military valor. The acts that the Prize recognizes should have taken place deliberately, over time. It may be awarded posthumously.
The Civil Courage Prize® is awarded annually by the Trustees of The Train Foundation. By increasing awareness of civil courage, the Foundation's Trustees hope to encourage that virtue.
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
We particularly encourage any use of the term "civil courage." The term "Civil Courage Prize®" is registered under United States Trademark Law, but we welcome its use by others along with the identifying registration symbol, Civil Courage Prize.
