On Saturday, July 29, the Beatitudes Center will welcome Medea Benjamin, one of the leading peacemakers, peace activists, organizers and movement leaders in the nation, if not the world. She is the co-founder of the women-led peace organization CODEPINK and Global Exchange. She also founded the Peace In Ukraine Coalition; Unfreeze Afghanistan (which advocates for the returning the $7 billion of Afghan funds frozen in U.S. banks); and ACERE, the Alliance for Cuba Engagement and Respect.
Medea will discuss the issues and challenges of peacemaking today, including the war on Ukraine; drone warfare; nuclear weapons; the U.S. military budget and economy; Afghanistan and Iraq; and latest strategies and plans for anti-war organizing. Please study www.codepink.org and bring your questions for Medea so together we can renew our work for disarmament and peace in this world of permanent war, that we might be who we are called to be: blessed peacemakers.
This session will last an hour and a half; registration is limited. Cost is $30; scholarships are available. Cancellation policy: Refunds will not be offered after Zoom link is issued.
If you have any questions or to ask about scholarships, please email Kassandra at the Beatitudes Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
