Talk Planned at Jeannette Rankin Peace Center: Missoula, MT, September 22

By David J. Smith, September 12, 2016

I am pleased to be speaking at the Jeannette Rankin Peace Center in Missoula, MT on September 22.  I will be giving a talk from 12-1 p.m. on careers in peacebuilding.  The jeannette_rankin_portrait-150x150Missoula-based center honors the legacy of Jeannette Rankin, a Republican member of Congress elected in 1916 and 1940.  In 1941 she was the only dissenting vote in the resolution to go to war against Japan.  She was the first female elected to Congress.

The mission of Center is to:

Connect and empower people to build a socially just, non-violent and sustainable community and world.

We are committed to a process of reflection, dialogue and action, both in times of crisis and in the ongoing work of peacemaking.

We believe that informed, engaged citizens are the foundation of both democracy and peace, and aim our efforts at supporting both.

If you interested in attending the event, contact the Center.
