Conference: ‘Rolling Back Militarism: A Task for the Global Movement’
November 14, 2009 @ 12:00 pm - November 15, 2009 @ 7:00 pm
At this time of global economic and environmental crisis, join activists from International & US based NGOs to find the opportunity – this conference is an invitation to engage in a strategic process, to examine our campaigning priorities and options, to explore new ways to challenge the militarism we see around us, and to build international connections and partnerships.
• Learn ways to help constituents begin to break with the culture and practice of militarism that is now a U.S. legacy
• Set strategies to achieve more collaborative, peace-oriented policies from the Obama administration.
• Rebuild relations between US peace movement(s), partners abroad, & key leaders from sister organizations.
• Forge new alliances and exchange proposals for future joint work.
