2015 BENEDICTINES for PEACE Spring Speaker Series
Medea Benjamin will speak at Mount Saint Benedict Monastery on Monday May 18, 2015, at 7pm.
Medea is the co-founder of both CODEPINK and the international human rights organization Global Exchange. She has been an advocate for social justice for more than 30 years and is described as "one of America's most committed--and most effective--fighters for human rights."
Since the September 11, 2001 tragedy, Medea has been working to promote a U.S. foreign policy that would respect human rights and gain us allies instead of contributing to violence and undermining our international reputation.
Medea is a former economist and nutritionist with the United Nations and World Health Organization.
