Sherry Simon at potluck!

Sherry Simon, PhD
Tuesday, November 19th at 6:30 p.m.
2510 Hidden Valley Drive
in Little Rock

Pax Christi believes (like WAND) that the massive death, damage, years of suffering, and pure adulteration of humanity and creation caused by nuclear weapons should never happen again. 
Sherry Simon, PhD, a Clinical psychologist in private practice and President, Pax Christi Little Rock , will lead the discussion on Back from the Brink, a national movement to abolish nuclear weapons. On August 6, 2019, the 74th anniversary of the United States imposing nuclear devastation on Hiroshima, Japan, Pax Christi USA launched its Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War Campaign. The Little Rock chapter has adopted the campaign as its signature program of activities for the year.Hundreds of religious, environmental, and peace organizations and local and state governments nationwide have joined the campaign. Arkansas WAND should be among them!

Why We Need to Abolish
the Death Penalty in Arkansas!

Judith Elane, and Furunda Bransfield will lead the discussion

Judith Elane
Judith is a life long opponent of the death penalty and a member of the Board of the Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. Her opposition was first articulated by the adage, “Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?” It has never made sense to her, even after the shooting death of her older brother.

In light of the re-activation of the federal death penalty, she will discuss some of the ways in which the death penalty is obsolete. She will be accompanied by Furonda Brasfield, Executive Director of the ACADP.

Early registration will help the organizers plan the event.

People across the country are asking the same question: “What can I do to change what’s happening in the world?”

Your voice can make an important impact on federal policy. In-person meetings with your members of Congress are the most effective way to influence policy decisions. 

Change in Washington starts with you. 

Please join us for an advocacy workshop:
●    Influence your members of Congress and their staff through face-to-face conversations 
●    Drive the media coverage you want to see
●    Build a strategic team in your community that lobbies as part of a powerful national advocacy network

Join our 2019 Advocacy Team campaign to stop endless wars by urging Congress to reassert its constitutional authority. We are supporting legislation to repeal the AUMF and encourage public debate on all issues of war and peace.
