Video splurge from PeaceWorks’ Annual Meeting

The array of videos from PeaceWorks-KC’s Annual Meeting March 1 includes these gems, produced by Mark and Jenny Semet Videography. The first video is of Sunny Hamrick opening the meeting. The second has Ann Suellentrop's encouragement to read the book Warheads to Windmills: How to Pay for the Green New Deal. The other videos come from the play "Nukes on Trial in KC." Incredible witness!

"The peace movement, sometimes as small as 17 nonviolent line-crossers, is the fourth line of defense against the three government branches, which all have a high degree of militarism. The peace movement is democracy without militarism," says Ron Faust. Photo by Jim Hannah.

Get glimpses of PeaceWorks’ 3/1 Annual Meeting

The PeaceWorks-KC Annual Meeting was rich with meaning and memories. PeaceWorks leaders recalled events of the past year; a play explored reasons for resisting the making of parts for nuclear weapons in KC, MO. The pictures and podcast give you a taste of our Annual Meeting March 1.

Expand Medicaid in Kansas

I travelled with others from the Poor People's Campaign and PeaceWorks-KC on Jan.14 to advocate expanded Medicaid in Kansas. In July, a study of mortality rates in non-expansion states estimated that 288 Kansans have died prematurely every year since 2014 specifically due to our failure to adopt expansion. Totally unacceptable and senseless!
