Marie Braun is a long time peace and justice activist and has been a member of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) for 35 years. Following a trip to Iraq in 1998, she became involved in grassroots organizing against the sanctions on that country and later against the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria and in protesting many other U.S. threats of war. She is a member of the WAMM End War Committee, which is spearheading the WAMM Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons.
Marie's presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion on what faith communities can do to support the recent Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and rid the world of the threat they pose to the environment, to future generations and to the very survival of humanity.
