Book: Unconventional Combat: Intersectional Action in the Veterans’ Peace Movement by Michael A. Messner
Sessions will follow at the same hour on Sunday's bi-weekly; July 25 and August 8, and August 22. (We are asking everyone to commit to full participation or anticipate not missing more than one of the dates listed.)
Our third book will be Unconventional Combat: Intersectional Action in the Veterans’ Peace Movement by Michael A. Messner . We will discuss how we can apply Intersectional Action in VFP in collaboration with other organizations and movements in relation to our VFP Statement of Purpose and the VFP Be The Change Book Club Group Purpose.
Group Purpose: The purpose of this group is to explore with others, via discussion of various books and other media, in a safe and open social space, the ways in which colonization, racism, gender bias and other biases show up in our lives and in our activism. Growing our awareness of how our words and actions affect and are related to the society we live in, and how our personal behaviors contribute to the culture of Veterans For Peace, allows us to be more accountable to ourselves and others, increases our individual agency. Learn more about yourself and others by coming together for meaningful discussions geared toward personal and organizational growth, in a mutually supportive atmosphere reflective of the VFP mission of “building a culture of peace.”
