Beyond Vietnam: 50th Anniversary

 

April 2017 is the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech Beyond Vietnam, a powerful and historic articulation of the message of the modern peace and justice movement.  We will read key excerpts from the speech at this event.

We will also participate in issue-oriented workshops.   At the business meeting, members will elect Massachusetts Peace Action’s board of directors and approve our 2017 work plan.
