(This year's gathering is split into two parts. On Wednesday, June 10, Noam Chomsky will be our speaker. Click here for details. The program on June 10 will be preceded by a sponsor-only reception with Noam Chomsky which includes the opportunity to ask Prof. Chomsky questions and be seen and heard by each other and other reception attendees--which won't be the case with the webinar that follows. Sponsors will also be listed in the program, for both the June 10 and June 14 events.)
The second part of the gathering will be held on Sunday, June 14 at 3 p.m. with Michael Klare as our keynote speaker. This program will also include the presentation of honors to notable peacemakers (scroll down on this page for bios).
