How to Get Press for Peace Activists, with Norman Solomon and Kathy Kelly

Tue May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Tuesday May 14th @ 7:00pm ET


As wars continue in Gaza, Ukraine, and elsewhere, efforts to stop them are up against a powerful military-industrial-media complex in the United States. No matter how much coverage of war comes through mainstream news outlets, the human realities of war are scarcely conveyed.

Let’s change it!

You’re invited to the live online presentation — “Make War Visible . . . and End It” — with authors and activists Norman Solomon, whose book War Made Invisible: How America Hides the Human Toll of Its Military Machine was published last year, and Kathy Kelly, whose work with Voices in the Wilderness has brought her to Iraq, the West Bank, Lebanon, and Gaza; all during wartime.


Norman Solomon is an American journalist, media critic, author and activist. He is the founder of the Institute for Public Accuracy, a consortium of policy researchers and analysts. He is IPA’s executive director and the coordinator of its ExposeFacts program.  He is co-founder and national director of the online organization RootsAction.org, which now has upwards of 1.3 million online supporters. Solomon was elected as a Bernie Sanders delegate to the 2016 and 2020 Democratic National Conventions, where he was a coordinator of the independent Bernie Delegates Network.  In 2012, he ran for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s 2nd Congressional District, and came within 0.1 percent of getting through the primary.



Kathy Kelly is board president of World BEYOND War. She co-coordinates the Merchants of Death War Crimes Tribunal. Since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, she has coordinated an international network to assist young Afghans forced to flee their country. She made over two dozen trips to Afghanistan from 2010 – 2019, living with young Afghan Peace Volunteers in a working-class neighborhood in Kabul.

Kathy has been an educator for most of her life, but she believes children of war and those who are victims of violence have been her most important teachers.
