Join author and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Kathy Kelly (pictured above, left, with youth in Afghanistan), co-founder of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, for an evening of insight and inspiration on Thursday, September 27th at 7:00 PM. Kathy's talk is titled "Afghanistan, Iraq, & Yemen: Finding Hope in Countries Devastated by US Policy."
Kathy Kelly has dedicated her life to bringing peace to those in conflict zones. Her particular focus on the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen helps expose the direct impacts of US policies including sanctions, war, drones and military support for warring parties. She is a frequent guest on Democracy Now! and her writings are posted widely.
Ms. Kelly's visit comes just 10 days before the 17th anniversary of the start of the US war in Afghanistan, which is said to be this country's longest war.
This event is free and open to the public.
Cosponsored by Associated Students of Portland Community College and Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group. Other sponsors include KBOO Community Radio, Network Against Racism and Islamophobia, Oregon PSR, and Veterans for Peace Chapter 72.
