ZOOM WEBINAR: FEBRUARY 16, 2021 at 11:30am – 12:30pm

Join us for a conversation between Peaceful Tomorrows member Elizabeth Miller and former Guantanamo detainee Mohamedou Ould Slahi. The pair will discuss their experiences as a family member who lost her father on 9/11, and as a detainee whose unwarranted arrest led to 14 years at Guantanamo Bay prison. Both share a path of nonviolent response to their anguish; Slahi’s documented in the soon to be released film The Mauritanian.
Peaceful Tomorrows’ co-founder Colleen Kelly, who frequently travels to Guantanamo to monitor the pre-trial hearings, will moderate the discussion.
Questions from the audience will be addressed in real time.
