Progressives and the Crisis in Ukraine (Webinar)

June 23, 2022 @ 7:00 PM 8:00 PM

The US effort to support Ukraine against the Russian invasion has moved progressive Democrats to join almost all centrist and rightwing congresspeople to vote for tens of billions in war funding. Join this conversation with two close observers of the peace movement’s political campaigns to explore how they understand the collapse of many formerly pro-peace Democrats into a pro-war position and what it will make to put diplomacy back on the agenda.

Phyllis Bennis,
Director of the New Internationalism Project at Institute for Policy Studies, focusing on Middle East, U.S. wars and UN issues
Norman Solomon, Co-founder of RootsAction.org and founding director of the Institute for Public Accuracy.
