Feminist Peace Initiative presents Grassroots Feminist Visions: A Way Forward from the War on Terror

Grassroots Feminist Visions: A Way Forward from the War on Terror Nearly 20 years after President George W. Bush made countries like Afghanistan, North Korea, Iran and Iraq targets of his administration’s “War on Terror,” what has been the impact of US militarized policy on the people of these countries and on those living in the United States? What is the Biden administration’s policy towards these countries, and what would a truly feminist foreign policy look like? Join the Feminist Peace Initiative in a discussion with leading feminists working to transform US foreign policy away from militarism and endless wars and towards a feminist understanding for peace and justice. Interpretation services for ASL, Spanish, Farsi, Korean, Arabic, and closed captioning will be available. Register HERE by September 21, 2021!
