The Peace Advocacy Coalition, a group of independent peace activists from various educational institutions and activist groups based along the Wasatch Front, presents guest lecturer Ann Wright. On March 13, 2003, Wright resigned from the State Department in protest against the pending U.S. invasion of Iraq and the curtailment of civil liberties within the United States. Since then she has been an indefatigable campaigner for peace and justice around the world, protesting against drone warfare, oppression, and continued development of nuclear weapons. Wright's talk at The City Library is entitled "Working for Justice for the Palestinians".
