All About Solutions

| July 9, 2003

Herbert Hoover once said ?Absolute freedom of the press to discuss public questions is a foundation stone of American liberty.? Yet, as Congress prepares to allot billions of additional tax dollars to the Department of Homeland Security and to the Pentagon, the media have done little to facilitate public discourse on the core issues at the heart of international conflict and terrorism. Now there?s a webcast video series designed to stimulate such conversations. Wednesday night, July 9, We The World?a nonprofit organization created to promote global interdependence?will launch ?Building Peace and Security in the 21st Century: A Teach-In/Speak-Out Videoconference Series.?

Sponsored by the Lifebridge Foundation and John Krysko of New York?s Interfaith Center, the videoconference will link the United Nations with universities and participants from around the world, including University Host Sites American University and the University of Minnesota. Notable panelists Congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, Felicity Hill, of the United Nations Development Organization for Women, and Mel Duncan, executive director of the Nonviolent Peaceforce, will discuss numerous peace-related topics, such as establishing a Department or Ministry of Peace in every country and providing significant funding for public media that are independent of special interests.

Tonight?s videoconference, the first in a summer series of three 90-minute programs, will be available via webcast at 6:03 p.m. Eastern time. To tune in, learn more about future broadcasts, and discover how you can donate your time or money to this cause, check out the link below.
