Written by Tom Walker on Tuesday, December 21, 2021
This Wednesday, December 22 at 9am, tune into the Peace & Justice Report for an interview with Stephanie Savell, co-director of Costs of War. In the post-911 wars, we have spent eight trillion dollars and over 929,000 people have died in over 85 countries. In addition, 38 million people have been displaced in Afghanstan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and the Philippines.
Our second guest will be Peace Corps veteran Leita Davis. She’ll talk about joining the Peace Corps at 55 and working in Senegal and Hati. In 2017 she received the Lillian Carter Award for her work while in Senegal in 1996.
