Invitation to take advantage of a special opportunity to attend the Princeton Conference on Drone Warfare from Friday supper on September 27 to Sunday lunch on September 29, 2019. The purpose is to train people of faith to advocate and educate against Drone Warfare.
Help organize the Faith Community on Drone Warfare!
The Interfaith Network on Drone Warfare
(INDW), a coalition of national denominations and faith groups, is
sponsoring a national training conference to equip people of faith
interested in organizing on this issue within the faith community on
ways to advocate and educate against drone warfare. It will be held at
Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, NJ.
The conference will begin with dinner on Friday, September 27 and will end with lunch on Sunday, September 29. The cost of the conference, including room, board and registration fee, is $50, and some financial help will be provided to you to cover travel costs (see below).
Due to a generous grant, we are able to offer reservations for this conference at the extremely reduced price of $50 to the first 60 registrants, a savings of $425 per person! So don't delay, reserve your place now!
It would be helpful if there were at least two people from your congressional district. If you are able to attend, please try to recruit someone else from your congressional district to attend the conference as well.
President Obama, during his second term, took steps to reduce civilian casualties associated with drone strikes. Since President Trump took office, the rate of US drone strikes has escalated dramatically, with almost no push-back from Congress to date.
This Conference will train and equip people of faith to educate congregations about drone warfare and to enable them to advocate with Congress to limit or end drone warfare. The conference will provide background information on lethal drones and will train participants to approach and engage congregations, enable people in congregations to participate in public policy advocacy, work with national denominational offices, and work with the media.
