Organizer/AuthorC. Casey
During the run-up to war in Iraq, Army Colonel (Ret.) and diplomat Ann Wright resigned her State Department post in protest. Wright, who had spent 19 years in the military and 16 years in diplomatic service, was one among dozens of government insiders and active-duty military personnel who spoke out, resigned, leaked documents, or refused to deploy in protest of government actions they felt were illegal. In Dissent: Voices of Conscience, Ann Wright and Susan Dixon tell the stories of these men and women, who risked careers, reputations, and even freedom out of loyalty to the Constitution and the rule of law.

Col. Wright will be speaking in San Jose on Wednesday, October 14, 7pm at First Christian Church, 80 S. 5th St., San Jose

Suggested donation $5-15. Sponsored by the San Jose Peace & Justice Center and First Christian Church San Jose
