Social Justice: A Global View – Presented by Kathy Kelly of “Voices for Creative Nonviolence”

May 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Find out how you, too, can make a difference.

Join Kathy Kelly and her colleagues from Voices for Creative Nonviolence for a conversation. Kathy, who recently returned from Afghanistan, will share her first hand experience living alongside families suffering from the violence caused by war zones in the region.

U.S. militarism exacerbates and prolongs wars in places like Afghanistan and Yemen.  Visiting in Kabul with destitute families, numerous widows, people living in refugee camps, and child laborers, Kathy and other Voices activists have seen the wasteful and devastating consequences of U.S. militarism. The Afghan Peace Volunteers, working independently, have shown remarkable abilities to identify and help solve problems they and their neediest neighbors face.

Kathy Kelly has traveled to war zones and lived alongside ordinary people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon, Bosnia, and Nicaragua. She has been helping build resistance to U.S. participation and support for war in Yemen, calling for an end to U.S. and Saudi-led coalition airstrikes against Yemen and an immediate opening of all Yemeni ports subjected to blockades.

All are welcome. Admission is by free will donation. Please email us at info@mariandale.org if you plan on attending.

Thank you! We look forward to meeting you at Mariandale.
