The Tomahawk cruise missiles that the U.S. used against Syria on April 6 were built at Tucson’s Raytheon missile factory.
In August, Raytheon was awarded a $900 million contract to develop the nation’s next generation of air-launched nuclear cruise missiles - work that will take place here in Tucson. Join the Raytheon Peacemakers as we demonstrate against war and those who profit from it. Survival demands better ideas, not better weapons.

In 1944, sixteen-year-old Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. There she endured unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. Over the coming months, Edith’s bravery helped her sister to survive, and led to her bunkmates rescuing her during a death march. When their camp was finally liberated, Edith was pulled from a pile of bodies, barely alive. Dr Edith Eger shares her experience of the Holocaust and the remarkable stories of those she has helped ever since. Today, she is an internationally acclaimed psychologist whose patients include survivors of abuse and soldiers suffering from PTSD.

Former city mayor Joe O’Brien will facilitate.|
Given the current world situation, there is a greater need than ever for creative diplomacy and viable alternatives for peace. Wars abound abroad, and the refugee crisis continues. Here in the US, the intense polarization of our domestic politics, the rise of domestic terrorism, and the near paralysis of our political system indicate that now, more than ever, we need to cultivate empathy and build bridges between left and right within our own country. Similar challenges permeate the local level as Worcester works to reduce youth violence and give our young people the best possible opportunity to grow and thrive.
