We are excited to bring you more conversations to dismantle the US led anti-China rhetoric. In this webinar CODEPINK's co-founder Jodie Evans will be in discussion with Julie Tang, co-founder of Pivot to Peace and Michael Wong, an activist for and member of Veteran's for Peace.

Previously, she had co-founded the “Rape of Nanjing” Redress Coalition in 1998. In 2020, she and a group of peace activists co-founded the “Pivot to Peace” organization dedicated to advocating for world peace, in particular, peace between the US and China.

He also appeared in the documentary "Sir! No Sir!" about the GI resistance to the Vietnam War.
