The Honourable TONY P. HALL
United States Representative (D-3rd, OH)


ICAS Liberty Award

Dear Friend:

We are pleased to announce that The Honourable Tony P. Hall, a member of
United States House of Representatives, is the winner of this year's
ICAS Liberty Award.

ICAS recognizes Congressman Hall's exemplary commitment and sustaining
contribution to promote humanity and peace in those areas of the world
stricken with poverty and torn by war.

Congressman Tony P. Hall, of Dayton, Ohio has been an outspoken advocate
for combating world hunger, protecting human rights, and promoting
humanitarian causes -- including basic education, adult literacy,
immunization and other child survival programs, and sustainable
agriculture in developing countries.

He has visited numerous poverty-stricken and war-torn regions, including
those in North Korea, Sudan, Cambodia, Burma, Laos, Bosnia, Angola,
Rwanda, Somalia, Peru, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Bangladesh and Haiti.
Congressman Hall has a record of consistently following up on these
visits by working to assist the needy people of these nations through
legislative and other channels.

Congressman Hall has sponsored legislation to help immunize the world's
children against major diseases, and to increase U.S. funding for
Vitamin A and other basic health programs.  He has supported legislation
to expand, improve and extend U.S. programs that provide food assistance
to other nations.  Most recently, he sponsored a successful amendment to
the 1996 Farm Bill to extend U.S. food aid programs until 2002.

He also has worked on numerous domestic initiatives -- promoting
micro-enterprise projects that create jobs, gleaning initiatives that
provide the needy with food, efforts to ease food-stamp cuts, and the
1997 "Hunger Has a Cure" campaign.  In 1997, Congressman Hall introduced
legislation calling on Congress to apologize for slavery.

Congressman Hall also has worked actively to improve human rights
conditions throughout the world, especially in the Philippines, East
Timor, Paraguay, South Korea, Romania, and several countries of the
former Soviet Union.  He has led efforts to call attention to the plight
of refugees around the world, to secure additional U.S. funding to
assist refugees, and to expand the activities of the U.S. State
Department to protect civilians during armed conflict.  In 1994,
Congressman Hall joined two others in nominating Bishop Carlos Belo for
the Nobel Peace Prize, which Bishop Belo won in 1996.

Congressman Hall is the founder and co-chairman of the Congressional
Hunger Center, a non-profit organization.   He served as Chairman of the
House Select Committee on Hunger from 1989 until it was abolished in
1993, then fasted for 22 days to draw worldwide attention to the scourge
of hunger.

He has served as the U. S. Representative for Ohio's Third District
since 1979 and serves on the House Committee on Rules and chairs the
House Democratic Task Force on Hunger.

A native of Dayton, Ohio and a graduate of Denison University,
Congressman Hall began his public service as a Peace Corps volunteer in
Thailand, teaching English during 1966 and 1967.  He served in Ohio's
House of Representatives from 1968 to 1972, and in Ohio's Senate from
1972 to 1978.  He and his wife, Janet, have two children.

Congressman Hall will be honoured at the ICAS Annual Liberty Award
Dinner* which is to be held at the Faculty Club of the University of
Pennsylvania.  * Date to be confirmed shortly.   Thank you.
