Peace Action of Staten Island




Two days after Memorial Day weekend, active duty soldiers and veterans will be invited to speak out at the PASI Annual Meeting about what patriotism means to them, on Wednesday, May 30th, from 6 to 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Church of Staten Island, 312 Fillmore Street, Staten Island, NY 10301.

In this era of seemingly endless wars, is it possible to be a patriot and to be against war? What is the difference between identifying as a patriot versus a nationalist? While these may sound like semantic questions, our different answers seem to define many of our political divisions.

The panel for this conversation will include Brittany DeBarros, Ghanim Khalil, and Patrick Youngkin, all who have experience in the military service since September 11, 2001.

The meeting is free and the public is invited.  New faces are especially welcome. Doors open at 6 pm and pizza will be served. 

A new PASI Board will be elected at this meeting.  Members who joined by April 30, 2018 are eligible to vote in the PASI Board election.  Go to www.peacesi.org to join or renew your membership. Flex your membership muscles!

Have you noticed how candidates for Congress talk about taxes, transportation, education, and jobs, but never about the proposed $819 billion military budget, the U.S. military involvement in the Middle East, the $1.7 trillion new nuclear arms race, or the importance of diplomacy?

Peace Action is trying to change the conversation with the Peace Voter Campaign.  We have sent out candidate questionnaires, held 6 candidate briefings, hosted 7 candidates at an April 21st Candidates Forum, and created a Voter Guide to help voters compare candidates on key foreign policy issues. We want to help register voters too. If you want to join the Peace Voter Campaign, send an email to pasi.contact@gmail.com.
