Multifaith Anti-Drone Conference

Date: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 17:30 to Saturday, April 9, 2016 - 17:30

All people of faith and conscience are invited to attend a Multifaith Anti-Drone Conference focused on shaping regional faith-rooted responses to drone warfare.

Featured speakers include Medea Benjamin of Code Pink; Arun Kundnani, author of “The Muslims Are Coming!”; Ray McGovern; Nick Mottern and Mary Ann Grady Flores.

Hosted by the Community of Living Traditions — a multifaith intentional community dedicated to social justice — this working conference will link anti-war organizing with the struggle to decolonize our faith traditions from racism, Islamophobia and empire. It will be an interactive, working conference that will follow up on the work done at the Interfaith Conference on Drone Warfare held at Princeton Seminary in January 2015, including building on the “Interfaith Letter on Drone Warfare” which was sent to President Barak Obama and the U.S. Congress.
