Since the Russian invasion began, some things are clearer. Among them: this invasion is illegal, a war crime, and a serious threat to everything we care about, given the risk of an escalation that leads to using nuclear weapons. The challenge we are facing as opponents of militarism is a real one, and many observers have had to change their thinking and emphasis in real time.

We expect the speakers not only to enlighten those active in the peace movement, but to offer a path forward, especially for those of us from NATO member countries. We’re keeping track of the latest on our Ukraine action page.

This event is at a time that allows for participants from many parts of the world. Questions? Email us: editor (at)
