View Comments

Sean Penn is being honored by a group of Nobel laureates for his relief work in Haiti following the country’s devastating January 2010 earthquake.

The actor will receive the 2012 Peace Summit Award at the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Chicago next month.

Penn arrived shortly after Haiti’s quake and established an aid organization that has provided schools, medical care and housing to thousands of people displaced by the quake.

The actor issued a statement yesterday calling the award an “extraordinary honor.”
