What Courage Looks Like

If courage were a pin striped suit, Col. Ann Wright would be seen wearing hers every day. Given the US State Department’s Award for Heroism for her actions in evacuating civilians from civil war in Sierra Leon, Col. Wright put her career on the line when, on March 19, 2003, she resigned her State Department post in protest of the Bush Administration’s planned invasion of Iraq. Since then she has picketed at Guantanamo, served on the international impeachment commission, and has been arrested numerous times for non-violent protest of the Bush administration’s policies. Recently she co-authored a book that, according to Daniel Ellsberg “should be leaked into the government.”

The public will have an opportunity to hear Col. Wright speak on the topic “Abandoning War: A People’s Agenda” on Thursday, February 12, at Hartnell College in the Steinbeck Hall.
