Global Network 25th Annual Conference

We are excited to share a short video that has just been made by our friend Will Griffin (Veterans For Peace) from Georgia about Huntsville and our upcoming Global Network annual space organizing conference.  Will is an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran and I’ve had the great pleasure of traveling with him to South Korea, Okinawa, India and Nepal.

 

Last month Will made a trip to Huntsville to do some advance work for the conference and produced this video.  You can see it at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oahqi_Xb9rw&feature=youtu.be

 

Lately Will has been making various videos from his travels and peace work so you might want to follow him.

 

Below is the latest update on our conference speakers and sponsors.  We are grateful to the sponsors for their help in promoting the event and for their generous donations as well.
