Recognizing the importance of hosting a plurality of voices, we will not have only one speaker. As of now, our speakers are:
Kathy Kelly, Three time Nobel Peace Prize Nominee (2000, 2001, 2003) who currently co-coordinates Voices for Creative Nonviolence, a group working to end U.S. military and economic warfare through nonviolent direct action. In the summer of 2011, she took part in the US Boat to Gaza project as a passenger on the "Audacity of Hope." She has traveled to Afghanistan multiple times to learn of the conditions faced by common people and to work with the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers to find non-military solutions to end the war. She lived in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead bombing in 2009, Baghdad during the 2003 "Shock and Awe" bombing, the 1998 Desert Fox bombing, as well as during the 1991 Gulf War. Her bravery and resolute commitment to peace and justice are the characteristics which should be honored and inspire students as they graduate.
