The Military-Industrial Complex at Ground Level

Mon November 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Join New Hampshire antiwar activist and scholar Joan Roelofs to discuss the Military Industrial Complex at the ground level with CODEPINK national Co-Director Carley Towne.  

During this webinar, we’ll discuss important themes and questions including:

  • What impact does our military establishment have at the local level?
  • How much has the border between civilian and military activities
    been blurred?
  • Which side is advancing in the war between civilization and militarization?
