Wilber Symposium on the Christian Tradition and Non-Violence

7:00 p.m.
Rogalski Center Ballroom

Free and open to the public

Kathy Kelly from Veterans for Peace will present "If You Want to Thank Us: Work for Peace."

Veterans for Peace is an organization that works to promote alternatives to war. Kelly is a peace activist, pacifist, and author. She is one of the founding members of Voices in the Wilderness and Voices for Creative Nonviolence. As part of a peace team, she has traveled to Iraq 26 times with much of that spent in war zones.

This year's Wilber Symposium is part of War and Peace, the 2019-20 St. Ambrose University College of Arts and Sciences Project Series. This year's theme is an engagement with the complex matters of war and peace, with the goal of developing greater moral clarity on the topic. 

War and Peace is a campus-wide collaboration, as well as a call for community involvement on local, national, and international levels. Go to Project Series War and Peace to see all events.

About the Wilber Symposium
