AlvarÃ© to Receive Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal
Professor Helen Alvaré will be awarded the 2012 Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal by the Notre Dame Fund to Protect Human Life.
The Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal, announced annually on Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday of October, consists of a specially commissioned medal and $10,000 prize, to be presented at a spring banquet to be held this year on April 25.
In a statement David Solomon, chair of the fund's governing committee, said, “Helen Alvaré has courageously and powerfully defended the cause of life against all comers for two decades. In some of the darkest hours for the pro-life cause in this country, her voice was heard clearly. With a public presence in the popular debate, a foot in the scholarly world that bolsters and sustains the deep arguments on life issues, and her extraordinary ability to connect with people, she has been a hero to us all. We are honored to award her the Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal.”
