Kathy Kelly: Community Response to the Casualties of War
November 14, 2009 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST
Three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly’s eyewitness accounts offer a message of hope through creative non-violence. Built around tangible community responses to the casualties of war, this multi-media event networks members of the local peace, justice, Iraqi refugee, veteran, artist communities, and aid agencies and the many volunteers who work with them.
During the event, Kathy Kelly and the audience will view a screening premiere of local digital stories, and then have a dialogue with their creators. Groups featured include: the Iraqi refugee immigrant young women with Iraqi Children’s Art Exchange and Iraqi Family Project; Women Against War; Schenectady Unitarians Social Action group; Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace. We will also be introduced to the Fort Drum Soldiers Billboard project, and artist Suzanne Opton.
This coalition-building program is part of the nationwide Peaceable Assembly Campaign, which seeks an end to the U.S. wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Co-sponsored by: Iraqi Refugee Project; Iraqi Children’s Art Exchange; Women Against War; Schenectady Unitarians Social Action group; Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace; Albany Veterans for Peace; Chatham Peace Initiative
