RACISM/WAR: MAKING CONNECTIONS FOR PEACE
NOVEMBER 19 (MONDAY)
VIETNAMESE AMERICAN COMMUNITY CENTER
(Behind the Fields Corner T Station, Red Line)
Racism and war (at home and abroad) are parts of a system of
oppression that affects all of us. We must all (including white,
middle-class/privileged peace activists) work together to overcome
the racism that fuels our wars abroad.
EXPERIENCE: testimony from casualties of war abroad and at home: Iraq
vets, CORI victims
DISCUSSION: antiracist dialogue about war abroad and at home
ACTION: antiracist next steps for peace following the leadership of
communities of color.
Guest Speakers include:
City Counselor CHUCK TURNER
