Peace activist Kathy Kelly just back from Afghanistan at Random Row, this Thursday, April 14th at 1 PM
Kathy Kelly of Voices for Creative Non-violence will be speaking at Random Row this Thursday. She is just back from Afghanistan and has much to report on. Ms. Kelly will discuss her observations about Afghan society and its struggling economy, and the impact of the war on its civilians. She will also describe her work with a group of young Afghans—the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers—a group seeking to build bridges among young people in Afghanistan, and share her ideas about nonviolent alternatives to war and division in Afghanistan. She has traveled to Afghanistan three times in 2010 with small delegations, intent on learning more about conditions faced by ordinary people in Afghanistan, a country afflicted by three decades of warfare.
