APN Vision of Peace Celebration, New York - Honoring Michael Walzer and Lara Friedman

Go HERE - or see below - for an invitation to the event with a link to make your reservation to join us in New York.

Note from Linda Heller Kamm, an event co-chair:

How wonderful that Americans for Peace Now has chosen Lara Friedman and Michael Walzer as the honorees for its upcoming Vision of Peace Celebration. Lara, APN’s former Director of Policy and Government Relations, has tirelessly represented the risks to Israel’s democratic and Jewish character of the expansion of settlements. Always armed with the facts, she has presented them clearly and accurately to both the State Department and the Congress while also alerting us all to the effects of Israel’s shortsighted policies.

Michael has been an APN stalwart and Board member from the very beginning. Better than anyone else, he has articulated the moral vision that should motivate the Jewish state and its supporters. Through his writings and his soft spoken but forceful clarity he has laid out the imperatives for a just and peaceful outcome to the conflict now in its 70th year.

And APN is always there. As it has provided a voice for reason, APN has built a community of Americans and Israelis who cherish the idea of an Israel that is a light to the nations and who never give up. We must give it our full support.

So please join APN and Lara and Michael in an evening of tribute and rededication to the hard work that still lies ahead.
