From the Front Lines of Global Peacemaking

Kathy Kelly, two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, humanitarian and American peace activist, has spent a lifetime standing in solidarity with the victims of global violence and resisting the forces that perpetuate war and conflict around the world.
As a co-founder and leader of Voices for Creative Non-Violence, Kathy is committed to the use of active non-violence as a means of speaking truth to power, both military and economic. From being on the ground in Bagdad during “shock and awe” to sending over 75 delegations to Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as emergency contingents to Gaza and Bahrain, Voices for Creative Non-Violence has been present with some of the people most forgotten and most affected by war in the Middle East.
Join us for an evening of story, music and inspiration from the front lines of global peacemaking.
- Hear first hand accounts from one of the world’s most dedicated and courageous peace-makers.
- Learn about the growing movement of Afghan youth peace volunteers working to build an international, multi-generational movement seeking GEN, a green, equal and non-violent world without war.
- Be moved by the stories of young people who are uniting to reject hatred, revenge and killing and who believe that non-violent friendships can change Afghanistan and the world.
A FREE-WILL DONATION at the door will support the important work of Voices for Creative Non-Violence.
