What you need to know: Filipinos and the Nobel Peace Prize by Jodesz Gavilan | Rappler

Dr. Jasmin Nario Galace, Dr. Loreta Castro, and the Center for Peace Education were included in the article "What you need to know: Filipinos and the Nobel Peace Prize" published by Rappler. Here's an excerpt: 

While Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is the first Filipino named as Nobel Laureate, there are others who were part of organizations that received the Nobel Peace Prize.

Jasmin Nario Galace and Loreta Castro – International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (2017)

Two Filipinos are part of the Geneva-based International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), a group that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017.

Jasmin Nario Galace and Loreta Castro are ICAN's campaign regional leads in Asia. The two are officials of the Center for Peace Education (CPE) in Miriam College, an ICAN member.

ICAN received the Nobel Peace Prize for “its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons.”
