Interfaith Conference to End Drone Warfare Offers Opportunity for Activism
September 27-29, 2019 | Princeton, NJ
One of the most chilling aspects of the United State’s Forever Wars has been the increasingly common practice of drone warfare. Yet even as this practice has become more common, it has received a disappointing lack of attention from members of Congress.
Now, the Interfaith Network on Drone Warfare (INDW)—a coalition of faith groups (including FCNL) working to end the disastrous U.S. drone program—is offering an opportunity to change that by empowering a network of grassroots activists.
Here’s how you can get involved.
The conference will provide attendees with background on the U.S. drone program, and training on how to organize local congregations to advocate against drone warfare. Following the conference, the INDW will offer monthly national conference calls with participants to share information and best practices.
The conference costs only $50, and includes room and board. Generous subsidies are available to help cover travel costs. The registration deadline is July 26 and availability is limited, so don’t delay!
You can find more information about the INDW and the conference here, and you can register for the conference here. This is a perfect opportunity to get your local community involved in a national issue and advocate for peace.
