  • Monthly board meeting
    July 31, 2021  1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

     

  • Writing Workshop with Veterans For Peace
    July 31, 2021  3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    Led by Warrior Writers trained facilitators and artists, these creative writing workshops offer prompts that cover a variety of military issues and experiences. This encourages sharing stories, opinions, and ideas for productive writing/reflecting/story-telling and art-making. By creating an open and accepting atmosphere, we build a community of support.

    Workshops are for any service member or veteran regardless of experiences with writing, combat, art, deployment, etc. These workshops are about just getting that pen to paper and using the creative process to explore and express experiences. Prompts may include writings, visual art, music, or video clips, and will center on the topics of reintegration and how to engage in creating a culture of peace.

  • Peace & Justice Conversations: Stories From a Lifetime of Activism
    August 2, 2021  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Online via Zoom

    Please join us for an evening conversation with lifetime activist John Lamperti.

    For most of my professional life I taught mathematics at Dartmouth College. In the late 1960s the Vietnam war became a major distraction, and I did what I could to fight against it. I had (mostly) mathematical sabbaticals in the USSR (1970) and in Denmark (1972-73); apart from those and while still teaching I worked with the AFSC and with PSR on the war and also on nuclear arms race issues.

    Then in 1985 I hitchhiked on an AFSC trip to Central America, and that’s been a major focus ever since. I spent half of 1990 in Nicaragua trying to make myself useful, observed several post-civil war elections in El Salvador and learned a lot about that country, and I’ve written many things hoping to bring their reality home to us (North) Americans. I spent 10 years (off and on) writing a biography of a fine man I learned about: Enrique Alvarez Cordova: Life of a Salvadoran Revolutionary and Gentleman.

    And of course I've been a more or less active member of Peace Action since it was founded as the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy (SANE) so many years ago.

  • Awaken: Thinking Well About Wokism, Social Justice, & Racial Reconciliation
    August 7, 2021  12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    REGISTER HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/awaken-thinking-well-about-wokism-social-justice-racial-reconciliation-tickets-158047625703

    Monique will be speaking at this upcoming one-day event at Southern Evangelical Seminary.

    Description:

    Are you "woke" or awake?

    In our polarized and confused culture, how do we navigate competing and contradictory messages regarding racism, social justice, etc.?

    It is imperative, if we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, that Christians are equipped to think well about the issues of woke-ism, social justice, and racial reconciliation.

    The "Awaken" event features speakers Bob Woodson, Monique Duson, and more, and will examine the questions surrounding systemic racism in America, police violence and people of color, the nature of true social justice, and how someone can escape woke-ism.

    We cannot love others well by sacrificing truth on the false alter of wokeness ideology. Join us as we humbly discuss these ideas and seek truth for the sake of the Gospel.

    Sponsored by Southern Evangelical Seminary

    “WOMEN, POWER, and SOCIAL JUSTICE: Building from Strength” is the theme for the 34th WILPF US Triennial Congress this summer. Here are the dates to remember: August 13-15 and 20-22 with some weekday afternoons/evenings. This schedule offers time to “see” everyone from around the world who shares our values and passions. A radical departure from past Congresses that were limited to those able to travel to them, this Congress is more open and more accessible than ever!

    Branches will offer panels and roundtables on various and fascinating issues. Other presentations include: The Americas & Colonialism, Indigenous Women Speaking Up, Social Justice Rising Up, Interviews, and the intersections of gender and racial disparities. There will be “HOW TOs” on membership and branch building, social media, feminist leadership, legislative success, and there will also be entertainment segments.

    You and your friends can plan a picnic or a house party to participate together, or plan to spend some time in the cool of your living room and still be part of it all. The important thing is we can all be together, watching, listening, discussing (and yes, arguing!) even though we will be many miles, even oceans, apart. We are getting ready for our WILPF family reunion – and this time it will be zooming out into the entire world.

  • Radical Solidarity for a Collective Future
    August 11, 2021  12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    This workshop, facilitated by Rania El Mugammar, explores solidarity through power sharing, mutual aid, and risk taking through the lens of anti-racism. Situated within a collective and care-based praxis, the session challenges the mainstream understandings of “allyship” and dares to imagine an intersectional approach towards a collective future. Healing centred engagement, collaborative design, grassroots interventions and transformative justice are explored as critical elements of radical solidarity.

    Audience: Students, Faculty and Staff
    Facilitator: Rania El Mugammar
    Level: Advanced

  • Peace & Justice Conversations: The New Cold War
    August 16, 2021  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Online via Zoom

    Although there is an ongoing debate among Russian and Soviet scholars on whether we are experiencing a new Cold War or the previous Cold War never ended, none will dispute the fact that US-Russian relations are at their lowest point in decades and chances of a Cold War turning into a hot war have never been greater. Because the consequences of this new cycle are so dire, it is essential to understand how we got here. This is the task of this NH Peace Action presentation led by Veteran for Peace/Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity activist Sarah Wilton who applies her more than 30 years as a military intelligence analyst, and a Russian area studies and international relations scholar to her analysis of the current predicament.

    Historians will long debate whether the current US-Russia tensions are the beginnings of a new Cold War or the continuation of that started in World War II’s aftermath. Regardless of the genesis, relations between the planet’s foremost nuclear powers have never been more dangerous. Unlike the post-World War II tensions, there is no Warsaw Pact buffer between NATO and Russia. Further, there are no ambassadorial level representations between Russia and the US. US-Russia tensions have had pivotal contexts such as the US-UK world order set up in the aftermath of World War II as well as turning points such as the collapse of the former Soviet Union and the regime change wars in the former Yugoslavia, Libya and Ukraine….The purpose of this presentation is not only to examine the roots of these events but to appreciate their seen and unseen consequences.

    Emerging from Oklahoma and New Hampshire rooted family, Sarah Wilton was commissioned active duty Ensign in the Naval Reserves after graduating from the University of Oklahoma. Pursuing her interests in travel, research and foreign languages she left naval active duty and engaged in a US Government national security career lasting through her retirement from the Naval Reserves as a full Commander (05), and her retirement from the Department of Defense with 30 years federal service. Within the Federal Government, she specialized in Russian/Soviet military politics and contributed to policies from the height of the Cold War through the international embrace of arms control to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) expansion. Along the way, she received advanced degrees from Georgetown University, the Naval War College, and the University of Maryland. After the birth of her two sons, Ms. Wilton’s career took a pivotal turn with her recognition of the importance of environmental vitality to national security. A lifetime member of Veterans for Peace, and she is an environmental and peace activist and free-lance teacher and writer. She led a discussion on Health and War with her presentation at the 2012 Peace Action New Hampshire annual convention. An avid biker, Ms. Wilton spent her 2002 summer vacation with her two sons on a biking tour of Denmark.

    About NHPA’s bi-weekly Zoom Peace & Justice Conversation Series: 2020’s upheavals brought us to a new moment of reckoning and possibility. How do we want to live in the world? What do we value? How can we make the changes we’ve been yearning for? NH Peace Action has been engaged in working for change for decades. We’d like to bring you into these conversations about issues and options for the future. Join us!

    You and your friends can plan a picnic or a house party to participate together, or plan to spend some time in the cool of your living room and still be part of it all. The important thing is we can all be together, watching, listening, discussing (and yes, arguing!) even though we will be many miles, even oceans, apart. We are getting ready for our WILPF family reunion – and this time it will be zooming out into the entire world.

Here are the dates to remember: August 13-15 and 20-22 with some weekday afternoons/evenings. This schedule offers time to “see” everyone from around the world who shares our values and passions. A radical departure from past Congresses that were limited to those able to travel to them, this Congress is more open and more accessible than ever!

    Branches will offer panels and roundtables on various and fascinating issues. Other presentations include: The Americas & Colonialism, Indigenous Women Speaking Up, Social Justice Rising Up, Interviews, and the intersections of gender and racial disparities. There will be “HOW TOs” on membership and branch building, social media, feminist leadership, legislative success, and there will also be entertainment segments.
