October 23, 2014 — Oregon WAND Program
INSTEAD OF WAR . . . .
Feeling heartsick as each bomb drops over Iraq and Syria? Do you believe there’s a better way to address violence than with armed conflict? Wondering how to get Congress to take more responsibility and resume its role in declaring war? As women, shouldn’t we have more say?
One of the toughest obstacles we face today is the growing ambivalence about undeclared wars and the lack of responsibility on the part of the US congress in debating these conflicts and their consequences. The evening’s discussion will focus on ways to keep our voices in the decision-making process and promote viable alternatives to endless war.
