Hear from World BEYOND War Co-Founder & Executive Director David Swanson about building a global, grassroots movement for a world beyond war. David will debunk the myths that war is inevitable, just, necessary, or beneficial. He'll make the case for war abolition, by outlining the economic, environmental, democratic, cultural, and moral downsides of war and preparations for war.

We'll discuss World BEYOND War's mission, strategies, activist campaigns, and peace education programs - as well as opportunities to get involved with the new Metro Vancouver chapter!
