Quaker Peace Advocacy- September 29 3:30 – 4:30 PM Twenty years after the shock and grief of Sept. 11, 2001, its legacy lives on in U.S. policies of perpetual warfare. U.S. presidents continue to use the military force authorizations passed to enable war in Afghanistan and Iraq to justify military action across the globe. This summer, the sustained efforts of FCNL’s lobbyists in Washington and our Advocacy Teams around the country helped Congress move closer than ever to repeal of the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (2002 Iraq AUMF). In this event, we’ll talk with advocates Pamela Minden and Luke Mayhew who have been part of this persistent, faithful grassroots movement for peace. Click here for more information.
