What will you do now that the election is over?
6:30 pm – 313 DeRicci Hall, Edgewood College, Madison, WI

Longtime Washington, DC area peace activist Malachy Kilbride, Joy First, peace activist from the Madison area, and Buddy Bell, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, will discuss ways to get involved in creating a different world following the election. This election year has been very contentious, lacking in civil discourse, and many important issues have not been discussed including ongoing wars, the “upgrading” of the nuclear arsenal, the drone program, and the Pentagon budget. What is important now is to realize that we, the people, have the power to take action and make changes for a better world.

Sponsored by Edgewood College COR General Education Program, National Campaign for Peace Tax Fund, and Madison Pledge of Resistance.

Speaking Events with Salma A. Hussein from Cairo, Egypt

  • What is the role of western media and Egyptian media in the human rights crisis?
  • How does U.S. strategy in Egypt impact Palestine?
