Please join us for the January Monthly Meeting of Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment as we explore the issue of peace and what we can expect from the new Biden Administration.
What campaign promises will be easy to fulfill and which ones will not be? What are the changes of reducing military spending and increasing funds for education, healthcare and the environment? Will the longest war in U.S. history end? Will troops in Iraq, Somalia, and Yeman come home? How will the Palestinians fare under a Biden administration? What are the chances of curtailing the plans to develop a new generation of nuclear weapons? Will the US to continue to be the policeman of the world? Where should the peace movement put its energy? Where are there opportunities for victories?What do Biden’s appointees say about his commitment to international cooperation? Who are our allies in Congress?
These are some of the questions that we will discuss with Cole Harrison, the Executive Director of Massachusetts Peace Action and a long-time activist and movement strategist, and Brian Garvey, Massachusetts Peace Action’s lead organizer.
The zoom meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 20 at 7:00 PM. You can zoom in at 6:45 PM for a bit of socializing prior to the official beginning of the meeting.
What a better time to talk about peace and the Biden Administration then on the day Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be inaugurated as President and Vice-President!
