Potluck and Movie: An Endless War: Getting Out of Afghanistan

October 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Potluck at 6 PM, movie at 7 PM.  Come for either or both!
On October 7,  2001, The United States embarked on its longest war ever by invading Afghanistan. In addition to Afghanistan, the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) has been used by the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations to justify military operations in 18 countries, including Somalia, Libya, Syria, and Yemen.
After over 18 years of endless war, it is time for Congress to repeal the 2001 AUMF and hold a public debate on how these wars serve the American people and how they impact global stability and security.
To view the trailer and learn more, go to https://endlesswar.org/film/
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN TAKE ACTION TO REPEAL THE 2001 AUMF GO TO:   FCNL.ORG/ENDLESSWAR
There will be discussion after the movie and and an opportunity to write letters to our Senators and Representatives requesting their support for repeal.
