Join former diplomat and Colonel, Ann Wright for a discussion on what conditions lead to ceasefires and the ends of wars and how we can help bring those conditions about. Ann will share her experience and knowledge as a diplomat and apply it to the current situation in Ukraine, Yemen, and around the world to help us work to end wars.

Since her resignation, she has been working with many organizations that work for peace in our world including Veterans For Peace, CODEPINK: Women for Peace, Peace Action, No to NATO and the International Peace Bureau. She writes extensively and speaks at events around the world. Ann is also co-author of the book “Dissent: Voices of Conscience.”
