Civil Courage Prize
for steadfast resistance to evil at great personal risk


The Civil Courage Prize honors civil courage — steadfast resistance to evil at great personal risk — rather than military valor. The acts that the Prize recognizes should have taken place deliberately, over time.

The Civil Courage Prize is awarded annually by the Trustees of The Train Foundation. By increasing awareness of civil courage, the Foundation's Trustees hope to encourage that virtue.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

-Edmund Burke

We particularly encourage any use of the term "civil courage." The term "Civil Courage Prize" is registered under United States Trademark Law, but we welcome its use by others along with the identifying registration symbol, Civil Courage Prize®.
