Kathy Kelly
Eyewitness to War, Witness for Peace

Saturday March 24 spend an inspiring evening with international peace activist, author and three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly.

When the first American Marines battled their way into Baghdad in March of 2003 they were met by Kathy Kelly and a small band of peace witnesses. From Baghdad to Beirut, Haiti to Ft Benning, from a maximum security prison cell to the Washington DC office of Hilary Clinton, Kathy Kelly has courageously put her life on the line to serve as a witness for peace in a war-ravaged world.

Join Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Women Against War, Veterans for Peace, and the First Unitarian Society of Schenectady Social Action Council, as we welcome Kathy back from her recent stay in Jordan, documenting the plight of Iraqi war refugees stranded there.

Her moving accounts of ordinary people caught up in violent conflict will sometimes shock, but will also leave you in awe of the power of human compassion.
