This free, public webinar will feature reflections by Kathy Kelly, the incoming board president of World BEYOND War. In the past 30 years, Kathy has lived among ordinary families and children during wars waged by the U.S. and its allies against Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza, and Lebanon. Her most recent article is entitled: "People in Yemen Suffer Atrocities, Too." In urging an alternative to war, she quotes Ammon Hennacy, a pacifist anarchist who said: "You can't be a vegetarian between meals and you can't be a pacifist between wars." There will be time for questions and answers.

The timing will be April 12, 2022, at 9 a.m. in Honolulu, 12 p.m. in Los Angeles, 2 p.m. in Mexico City, 3 p.m. in New York, 8 p.m. in London, and 10 p.m. in Moscow, which is the same time as April 13 at 5 a.m. in Sydney and 7 a.m. in Auckland.

Kathy Kelly has been President of the Board of World BEYOND War since March 2022, prior to which time she served as a member of the Advisory Board. She is based in the United States, but is often elsewhere.

Kathy is WBW’s second Board President, taking over for Leah Bolger.

Kathy’s efforts to end wars have led her to living in war zones and prisons over the past 35 years. In 2009 and 2010, Kathy was part of two Voices for Creative Nonviolence delegations which visited Pakistan to learn more about the consequences of U.S. drone attacks. From 2010 – 2019, the group organized dozens of delegations to visit Afghanistan, where they continued learning about casualties of U.S. drone attacks. Voices also helped organize protests at U.S. military bases operating weaponized drone attacks. She is now a co-coordinator of the Ban Killer Drones campaign.

Moderating and participating in the Q&A section will be World BEYOND War Executive Director David Swanson.
