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

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.

Note from Jo-Ann Mort, an event co-chair and APN board memeber:

I was delighted when Americans for Peace Now asked me to serve as a Co-Chair for our upcoming "Vision of Peace Celebration" on May 3. I have served on the board of directors of this important organization for many years, alongside my good friend Michael Walzer. I can't think of anyone more deserving than Michael to be recognized by APN. His writings have provided the road map to lead us to a just solution for Israelis and Palestinians, one that is humane, moral and secure for all.

And what a wonderful choice in selecting Lara Friedman to be honored alongside Michael. Lara is one of the most indefatigable, smart, and accomplished people with whom I have worked. While serving as APN's Director of Policy and Government Relations, her research, reports and policy work were critical to APN's visibility and success on Capitol Hill and informing and influencing foreign policy.

It will be a fantastic opportunity to share a memorable evening with friends, recognizing the important work and accomplishments of two uniquely thoughtful and dedicated people - Michael Walzer and Lara Friedman.

I hope I'll see you there!!

If you aren't able to attend, you can still join the celebration and congratulate the honorees, recognize the work of APN, or send a message of peace that will be shared that night in our tribute presentation. Just return the response card with your contribution and your message.
