Resisting Trump, Building Peace:
Massachusetts Peace Action Annual Meeting

Cartoon Trump Cabinet

In his first few days in office Donald Trump has appointed a reactionary cabinet stocked with generals and billionaires; pushed for more pipelines; and attacked immigrants and refugees. Join us at Massachusetts Peace Action's annual meeting. We will hear from a distinguished speaker, participate in issue-oriented breakout groups, elect our board of directors and approve our 2017 workplan.

More details to follow.
