Petition: Nobel Peace Prize for Malala Yusufzai

Two weeks ago 14-year old Malala Yusufzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in response to her campaign against the destruction of girls' schools in Pakistan. 

In the face of terror, Malala risked her life to speak out for the rights of girls everywhere.

Her bravery has sparked a global movement and we believe she deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for her courageous work. 

The first step in this process is to get Malala nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. 
Only certain people, like a Member of Parliament, are allowed put forward nominations. To make a major statement and to show that Canadians believe in Malala's work, we need all Canadian political party leaders and members to unanimously nominate Malala for the Nobel Peace Prize for her incredible work and bravery. 

A Nobel Peace Prize for Malala will send a clear message that the world is watching and will support those who stand up for gender equality and universal human rights that includes the right of education for girls. is a social action platform that empowers anyone, anywhere to start, join, and win campaigns to change the world.  

We're proud to be a certified B Corp, using the power of business for social good. is a non-partisan organization that empowers anyone, anywhere to start and win campaigns for social change.

Every day, people who start petitions on win meaningful change using the most easy-to-use & powerful grassroots organizing tools on the web.

I have spoken with Bob Rae, Leader of the Liberal Party, this morning about the petition and he said he is ready to throw his support behind the campaign.
