Voices for Creative Nonviolence welcomes you to celebrate the publication of Rosalie Riegle’s new book, “Doing Time for Peace: Resistance, Family, and Community” and to bid farewell to Brian Terrell as he prepares to do time for peace in a federal prison.

Rosalie will speak about her book which is a a collection of oral histories about more than seventy-five peacemakers who describe how they “say no to war-making in the strongest way possible by engaging in civil disobedience and paying the consequences in jail or prison. These courageous resisters leave family and community and life on the outside in their efforts to direct U.S. policy away from its militarism. Many are Catholic Workers, devoting their lives to the works of mercy instead of the works of war. They are homemakers and carpenters and social workers and teachers who are often called ‘faith-based activists.’ They speak from the left of the political perspective, providing a counterpoint to the faith-based activism of the fundamentalist Right.”

Brian will be turning himself in at the end of November to serve a 6 month sentence for crossing the line at Whiteman Air Force Base to protest drone warfare.
