Workshops are one of the most important activities during the Veterans For Peace annual conventions. Most of them are organized and led by Veteran For Peace members. We greatly appreciate the time and effort presenters put into creating their workshops.

Workshop blocks will be on Friday during the convention, with a total of 15 workshops available.

The theme of the convention is "All is One: Towards a Nuclear-Free and Peaceful World." The 2020 Convention Committee is asking folks to submit workshop applications focused on one or more of the following themes:

  • Nuclear abolition
  • Building an internal culture of peace
  • Militarism and the climate crisis
  • Anti-militarization and current military conflicts
  • Subject matter related to VFP national projects or working groups

If we receive two or more proposals on the same or similar topics, we may ask you to combine your workshop with another presenter.
Proposals for workshops will not be accepted after May 15, 2020.

Please note that all workshop presenters are required to register for the convention. While we cannot offer free registration, on the registration form, workshop presenters are given the option to register at the reduced rate. If you have questions regarding registration fees, please contact Shelly at 314-725-6005 or email her at
