Divesting from War, then the Library Foundation – Peace & Justice Dec. 9 at 9am

Written by on Sunday, December 6, 2020

Our first guest at 9am this Wednesday, December 9, at 9am will be Carley Towne. Carley is a Code Pink National Co-Director leading their Divest from War and Defund the Pentagon programs.

$2 billion a day.
$23 million an hour.
$23,000 a second. 
That’s how much we spend on our Pentagon budget.

You can also see Carley and Heidi Peltier, Project Director of the Costs of War Project at Brown University for a facilitated dialogue about the true cost of war on Wednesday, December 9th at 8PM ET on the Code Pink website or YouTube.

Our second guest will be Peter Pearson, Board Member of the Libary Foundation for Sarasota County. We’ll talk about all the new services offered by our local libraries, including e-Books and the new hotspots which can be checked out to provide Internet access. And we’ll hear about other services such as the new Creation Stations where “visitors can learn how to program a robot, design and build products on the 3-D printer, digitize old family photos, learn how to code, sew with a grandparent, create materials to start a small business, launch a podcast … and anything else their creative minds can imagine.”
