Talking Peace
President Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter's diplomatic and humanitarian activities have spanned the globe since the 39th president left the White House in 1980. Carter's recent participation in the turnover of the Panama Canal was merely the latest example of his leadership as a peacemaker in places such as Haiti and the Balkans, disease fighter in the developing world and homebuilder for America's poor. The Atlanta-based Carter Center, which he actively guides, conducts a wide range of humanitarian work. The former president also has been an influential voice on issues concerning faith and human rights. -- The Progress Project
