Building a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence:

Overcoming Money in Politics

Boyd Science Center
Plymouth State University
Saturday, April 18, 9:30am to 3pm

Militarism, incarceration, and environmental degradation intensify through policies bought by campaign contributions and high paid lobbyists. We must address the corrupting influence of money in our political system if we are to build a culture of peace and non-violence. We will prepare ourselves through "bird-dog" training, skills and issue workshops and a keynote address by Lawrence Wilkerson.

An expert in foreign policy, Wilkerson offers honest criticism of America’s policies on war and militarism.

"Bird-Dog" Training

Other workshop topics:
Money in Politics, Direct Action, Militarism, Incarceration, Global Warming, Net Neutrality, and GMOs.
