Save the Date for the Coalition for Peace Action's 38th Multifaith Service and Conference for Peace featuring Prof. Noam Chomsky and Prof. Reza Aslan on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at Nassau Presbyterian Church (61 Nassau Street Princeton, NJ).
Prof. Noam Chomsky is a US political theorist and activist, and Institute Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Besides his work in linguistics, Chomsky is internationally recognized as one of the most critically engaged public intellectuals alive today. Recently, Chomsky stated, "The threats we now face are the most severe that have ever arisen in human history. They are literal threats to survival: nuclear war, environmental catastrophe. These are very urgent concerns. They cannot be delayed. They became more urgent on November 8th, for the reasons you know and that I mentioned. They have to be faced directly, and soon, if the human experiment is not to prove to be a disastrous failure." Read complete bio.
