Chicago Area Peace Action Student-Led Peace Summit 2023: Fighting the War Machine in Chicago and Beyond
Throughout this past year’s news cycle, one of the major events commonly covered has been the war in Ukraine. Although it may have been the most highlighted, this conflict is just one of many ongoing violent catastrophes around the globe.
From Palestine to Yemen, from El Salvador to right here in Chicago, the international war machine continues to destroy people’s lives. Such militarism is often framed as “just” and “necessary,” while communities around the world know it is anything but. This is why Chicago Area Peace Action’s Student Network is hosting a peace summit that will help organize, empower and educate activists from all backgrounds and experience levels so we can band together and demand global peace!
