Bono Awarded Liberty Medal

Published: 2007-05-25
The National Constitution Center, a non-profit that aims to increase understanding of the US Constitution, is going to award U2's frontman Bono with the 2007 Liberty Medal in September. The award is given to one or more people who have "demonstrated leadership and vision in the pursuit of liberty of conscience or freedom from oppression, ignorance or deprivation."

Bono and the organization DATA, which he co-founded, have been working to bring financial and medical aid to Africa and raising awareness for the plight of the African people. Many are estimating Bono, like other Liberty Medal winners will go on to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
