Kathy Kelly organized 70 delegations to Iraq bringing medicines in violation of sanctions. Voices for Creative Nonviolence & Kathy are now working with Afghan Peace Volunteers to end violence. Kathy has protested drones, missiles, & the School of Americas. Kathy has been nominated 3 times for the Nobel Peace Prize, and arrested more than 60 times in the U.S. and abroad. Kathy will have recently returned from one of her numerous pilgrimages to Afghanistan. She brings to us the voices of the people living under the constant threat and scrutiny of drones and missiles operated by the U.S. government and paid for by those who live within its shores.
