The peace movement to stop the US war in Vietnam was composed of numerous sectors of civil society. It included students, women, labor, soldiers, journalists, professors, elected officials, Black, Brown, Chicano and Indigenous, youth, and religious, pacifist and interfaith organizations. The Vietnam Peace Commemoration Committee welcomes you to an online webinar to discuss how religious groups were organized, what they did and lessons from that multi-year experience. We will also look at how faith-based organizations are confronting today’s challenges, and explore what can be learned from the dialogue across the decades. You will hear panelists from Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish groups from both national and local perspectives.
