Celebrating 40 years of Nebraskans for Peace

Thank you to everyone who attended last weekends Annual Peace Conference. With more than 150 in attendance, the event was a huge success!  We had the pleasure of hearing from two stellar keynote speakers: Mike Moore, author of the award-winning  Twilight War: The Folly of U.S. Space Dominance, and Heidi Beirich, director of research for the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama.

In addition to the keynote addresses participants attended lively break-out sessions on issues ranging from the International Violence Against Women Act and Stopping Violence Against Women in Whiteclay to The War in Afghanistan & Pakistan. Workshop topics also included Religious Movements & Modern Peacemaking, Organizing for a Just Immigration Policy and Helping Chapter Activists Utilize NFP’s Web Resources.  The conference provided an amazing overview of the work that NFP is currently doing and why NFP is still so vital, even after 40 years!

As a recognition of our 40th anniversary celebration NFP was featured on KFOR radio's Lincoln Live program with Dale JohnsonDale sat down with NFP Board President, Paul Olson and board member, Jill Francke. We invite you to take a few minutes to listen to the interview by clicking here.
