Phyllis Creighton Phyllis Creighton also received the Muriel Duckworth Activist Award. An editor, ethicist, and writer, Phyllis' work for disarmament, especially nuclear disarmament, is strong and persistent. Phyllis has also been unstintingly active in many justice/peace organizations for 25 years.

Phyllis Creighton was on the board of Science for Peace, which she represented on the Canadian Network to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and on the Hiroshima Day Coalition. She was an invited speaker at the 2001and 2005 World Conference against Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs held in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She served on the steering committee of Veterans Against Nuclear Arms, and still pursues peace and justice with the Toronto Raging Grannies. n the past several General Synods of the Anglican Church, she has successfully presented motions of her own on landmines, nuclear weapons, and depleted uranium. What follows is a fuller description of ten peace-focused organizations with which she is actively inked:
** Toronto-Volgograd, from 1983, a citizen diplomat initiative that was instrumental in getting Toronto twinned with that Russian city, which was known under the Soviets as Stalingrad ** Project Ploughshares (the peace coalition of the Canadian Council of Churches), on whose board and executive she represented the Anglican Church of Canada (1987-88, 1990-98) ** International Peace Bureau, to which she has been an elected consultant since 1991, and was North American regional rep., 2000 - 3 (the world's oldest and broadest federation of peace organizations, now based in Geneva. IPB was founded 1891, Nobel Peace Prize 1910. It has more than 225 member groups.) ** No Weapons in Space, of which she is treasurer (from 2002) ** Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW), member and active in its project to delegitimize war: speaker in the VOW three-person panel against war, held in the Church Centre, New York City, at the time of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) 2004 meeting, as well as judge in VOW's Mock Court putting war on trial, its presentation at the time of the 2005 CSW ** Mayors for Peace, in which she has been a citizen activist promoting at City Hall its 2020 Vision Campaign for nuclear weapons abolition and an invited participant at the MfP Conference in NYC, May 2005 ** World Conference against A & H Bombs held in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (1-9 August), at which she has twice been an invited speaker (2001, 2005) * * Raging Grannies, a well-known Canada-wide "mafia" originating in Victoria, B.C. (1986), in which she has been active from 1990 ** Science for Peace (SfP), board member from 1993, and vice-president (2005-6); collaborator in and initiator of numerous SfP briefs on defence, foreign affairs, security, nuclear weapons abolition, missile defence, and peace policies, from 1994 ** Mayors for Peace, in which she has been a citizen activist promoting at City Hall its 2020 Vision Campaign for nuclear weapons abolition and an invited participant at the MfP Conference in NYC, May 2005
