Tuesday, December 6 Capitol Calling Party: Diplomacy Now!

Tuesday, December 6 Capitol Calling Party

On Tuesday, December 6, join CODEPINK Congress and Massachusetts Peace action for our next Capitol Calling Party on diplomacy, featuring Chas Freeman and Jeffrey Sachs (on video_.

What happened to the art of diplomacy? Let’s revive it! Hear from the diplomats on how diplomacy should work, as well as prospects for diplomacy to resolve the war in Ukraine and lower the tension between the US and the People’s Republic of China. With NATO expanding to the Pacific and the Ukraine crisis posing an existential danger, the pursuit of diplomacy must take center stage. Guest co-host Col. Ann Wright, former US deputy ambassador to Afghanistan, will be among the moderators.

P.S. Tell the Biden White House to tune in!

Featured Guests
