The Budget: Our Country, Our Values, Our Planet Up for Grabs
Dr. Miriam Pemberton directs the Peace Economy Transitions Project at the Institute for Policy Studies and co-edited Lessons from Iraq: Avoiding the Next War with William Hartung. She has commented widely on military vs. climate security and what that means for our country.
Dr. Pemberton comes to Albany as a guest of Women Against War (WAW), a group which brings Capital District women together to work for peace. WAW is based on the belief that war is not the answer to conflict, and that women can lead the way to developing alternatives to violence.
