Muhammad Ali, three-time heavyweight boxing champion and one of the most recognized people in the world, is a nominee for a Nobel Peace Prize. Co-nominated with Ali is Peter Georgi, Ali's former senior humanitarian advisor.

The nomination is based on Ali's and Georgi's many years of effort to create the Children's General Assembly, a new United Nations-authorized organization that will allow children to promote the following:

World peace,environmental healing, sustainable development, the optimization of education, the improvement of health and healthy water supplies, ways to reduce the world's mortality rate of children, remedies to the problems of hunger, malnutrition, AIDS and other diseases, illiteracy, drug abuse, and many other pressing issues that face an increasingly troubled world.

The Children's General Assembly of Los Angeles, California is gathering more than 100 child ambassadors from around the world with the support of 179 governments that have unanimously approved the concept of giving children a meaningful voice.

"You cannot find a better candidate than Muhammad Ali for the Nobel Peace Prize," said Subash Razdan, chairman of the Gandhi Foundation USA, the organization that made the nomination.

Ali and Georgi are the cofounders of the Children's General Assembly and its launching organization, the Children's Peace Foundation. Georgi, the organization's chairman and president, conceived and financed the development of the Children's General Assembly.

Muhammad Ali, an official United Nations Messenger of Peace, was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and has a long track record of promoting peace and helping children throughout the world.

The Children's Peace Foundation's Honorary Board of Advisors includes Elizabeth Taylor, Lionel Richie, Whoopi Goldberg, Drew Barrymore, Rod Stewart, Quincy Jones, Little Richard, Brooke Shields and many other celebrities. The Board of Advisors includes Claes Nobel, a senior member of the Nobel family of Sweden.
