Potluck and Peace Speaker 

When: Fri., June 19, 6:30-8:45 p.m. 2015
Phone: 707-845-0896
Price: Free
David Hartsough speaks on the power of nonviolence and his recently published book, Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist. Potluck dinner at 6:30 p.m. Hartsough’s story demonstrates the power and effectiveness of organized nonviolent action. But Waging Peace is more than one man’s memoir. Hartsough shows how this struggle is waged all over the world by ordinary people committed to ending the spiral of violence and war. Hartsough will also be participating in the re-christening and launch of the Ketch, the Golden Rule on Saturday June 20 at the Zerland and Zerlang Marine Services at 1493 Fay Ave in Samoa at 2pm. The Golden Rule, found at the bottom of Humboldt Bay, and refurbished by Veterans for Peace and others, was originally used in 1958 to protest the testing of nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands. It was part of Hartsough’s inspiration for his lifetime of peacemaking. David Hartsough is the Director of PEACEWORKERS, based in San Francisco, co-founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce, and co-initiator of World Beyond War: A Global Movement to End All War. Hartsough met Martin Luther King in 1956 and has been active in the civil rights and peace movements since the 1950’s and has worked as a peacemaker in many parts of the world and helped build many nonviolent movements. Sponsored by Humboldt Friends Meeting (QUAKERS), Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and VFP Golden Rule Project
