Celebrate the Peace Council’s 77th birthday and enjoy a tasty vegetarian meal followed by a talk and discussion with Noor Mir from CodePink Women Against War. Based in Washington DC, Noor is the anti-drones campaign coordinator for CODEPINK and calls Islamabad, Pakistan her home. She graduated from Vassar College in 2012 with majors in Political Science and French and English. While studying abroad, she took courses on international law and targeted killings and was driven to turn it into a year long research thesis on drone warfare in Pakistan. Noor is passionate about killer drones, humanitarian law and race relations. 

Noor was in Syracuse for April’s Resisting Drones, Global War and Empire Convergence and spoke powerfully on “The Human Face of War.” Since then, we’ve been eager to have her back and what better way that to have her speak at our Birthday Dinner!

You may come for the program only.
