The Moral Dimensions of Militarism

Thu September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Divest from War, Invest in Peace

The tragic end of the Afghanistan war provides ample evidence of the futility and wastes of war. Continuing to pour billions into military solutions instead of real human development and planetary health must be challenged. These four programs offer alternatives and actions we can take to redirect our common wealth for the health and prosperity of people and the planet.

With Rev. Liz Theoharis, Co-chair of the National Poor Peoples Campaign and Director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights and Social Justice.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 @ 7PM

There are numerous issues of moral concern with militarism. They go beyond the debate about ‘just wars’ or even how wars are prosecuted, to include the treatment of civilians, the destruction and poisoning of the environment and others. But there are also issues involved with simply preparing for war. Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, co-chair of the national Poor People’s Campaign, will introduce us to thinking more deeply about these concerns and how we might move away from war and build true peace and security.
