March 14-16, 2014
Santa Barbara, California
The 2014 Global Network space organizing conference will be held near Vandenberg AFB, California on March 14-16. We will meet at the La Casa de Maria Retreat and Conference Center in Santa Barbara. On Friday, March 14 we’ll organize a 4:00 pm vigil at the front gate of Vandenberg and on the evening of March 15 we will hold a public event at Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara.
Speakers at the March 15 event will include: David Krieger (Nuclear Age Peace Foundation), Dave Webb (Chair, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament-UK & Global Network board convener), Dennis Apel (Guadalupe Catholic Worker House), Christine Hong (Korea Policy Institute and UC Santa Cruz), Andrew Lichterman (Western States Legal Foundation), and Mary Beth Sullivan (social worker & peace conversion activist). Music will be provided by singer/songwriters Tom Neilson and Holly Gwinn Graham.
We will have limited sleeping space (dormitory style) available at the La Casa de Maria Retreat center so reservations will be necessary. (Other hotel information will be available if you would prefer those arrangements.) We will provide meals for those staying at the conference center. A sliding scale charge will run from $50-$150 (pay what you can best afford.)
There will be no charge for the Saturday, March 15 public event that will be held at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara.
