Let's Reclaim Armistice Day

Where: San Jose Peace and Justice Center
48 S 7th St
San Jose, CA 95112
Description:

Learn more about Armistice Day and Veterans for Peace with Phil Pflager. We will be starting with a potluck at 6, so if you can, bring a dish to pass around.

One hundred years ago, the world celebrated peace as a universal principle. Armistice Day was a ďa day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated." But after World War II, Congress re-branded the day Veterans Day, flipping the focus from peace to displays of militarism.

Come learn how to shift the focus back to peace and the ongoing work Veterans for Peace is doing locally and nationally.

Sponsored by Veterans for Peace 101, San Jose Peace and Justice Center, and Code Pink San Jose
