Event Details

David Hartsough does not shy away from the good fight. He has been arrested over a hundred times for his participation in nonviolent demonstrations for peace and justice in the US – for civil rights for black people, against nuclear weapons development, testing and production, against the US war in Vietnam and the US supported wars in Central America in the 1980’s, and against the US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

In his new book, Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist, David recounts these and many of his other experiences as an activist and why he is deeply committed to nonviolence and has been working actively for nonviolent social change and peaceful resolution of conflicts since he met Martin Luther King in 1956.

David is Executive Director of Peaceworkers based in San Francisco and is Co-Founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce. His articles have been published in Sojourners, Fellowship, Peacework, Friends Journal, Western Friend, Waging Nonviolence, National Catholic Reporter, and Street Spirit.
