Around the world, the poor and dispossessed are facing the direct violence, economics, and politics of war and militarism. This pain and devastation comes at great costs, both here and abroad, as an expanding military budget is accompanied by the militarization of our communities. Furthermore, while our communities battle for survival amidst a delusive politic of austerity, the Department of Defense is awarded unquestioned resources to ready the country for unending war.
Join us on Friday, December 6, for a public discussion on militarism, the war economy and building a moral economy in its place. The Kairos Center will bring together experts on the military budget, grassroots and community organizers, and others who are confronting the violence of militarism and the war economy, and identifying a path out of this violence towards real security at home and globally.
