War kNOw More: Our Militarism Costs U.S>

Please join us for a panel and discussion with:

•Larry Shook, veteran/journalist
•Dr. Tom Jeannot, Professor at Gonzaga University
•Rev. Todd Eklof, Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane

We look to challenge your assumptions about our continual wars by posing questions such as:

•Why are we willing to participate in war?
•How does war impact our society and psychology?
•What are the historical and cultural roots of militarism in America?
•How does war connect with racism?
•What is the moral cost of war?
