The War Prevention Initiative in collaboration with Ploughshares Fund, Win Without War and the University of Oregon hosted an informative and inspiring conversation around the theme of national security in turbulent times.
Michelle Dover from Ploughshares Fund emphasized the need to view domestic and foreign policy as a whole, not as issue areas that can be separated. Stephen Miles from Ploughshares Fund reminded the audience of the importance to weigh into the political issues regardless of where people are located. Instead of waiting to hear perspectives from D.C., he argued it was important for the people in D.C. to listen to voices outside.
The conversation was moderated by Patrick Hiller of the War Prevention Initiative.
Ploughshares Fund is a global peace and security foundation dedicated to reducing and eliminating nuclear weapons.
Win Without War is a diverse network of activists and organizations working for a more peaceful, progressive US foreign policy.
