Kathy Kelly:
​“The Raft and the Shore”--

Crossing Borders to Abolish War​

During the war in Vietnam, two venerable peacemakers, Thich Nhat Hanh and Daniel Berrigan, SJ, exchanged ideas about nonviolent resistance to war in a book entitled: The Raft is Not the Shore. Drawing on experiences living alongside people trapped in war zones and in U.S. prisons, (most recently in Afghanistan, and in federal prison in Lexington, Kentucky), Kathy Kelly will discuss what she as learned from people bearing the brunt of what Martin Luther King termed “the triple evils” of racism, militarism, and poverty.

Kathy Kelly will be introduced by Sherri Maurin, who has just returned from Afghanistan. Both travel as representatives of Voices for Creative Nonviolence and are hosted in Kabul by the Afghan Peace Volunteers.

Events sponsored by San Francisco Friends Peace and Social Concerns Committee; Voices for Creative Nonviolence, Ecumenical Peace Institute/CALC, Emergency, American Friends Service Committee, Veterans for Peace, Occupy Forum, Campaign Nonviolence and Code Pink
