Kate Grant writes to celebrate our longtime partner, Dr. Denis Mukwege, in an op-ed in the Mercury News. On December 10, 2018, he will be awarded the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize!
Every day, Mukwege serves as my North Star. His portrait hangs on the wall next to my desk as it has for nearly as long as I’ve known him. In a white doctor’s coat and a lapel pin that says “DO NOT STAND IDLY BY” he reminds me of the sacrifices he’s made to give the voiceless a voice and to return their health and their hope.
