Peace & Justice Conversations: George Friday & the Triplets of Evil

June 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Please join NH Peace Action in welcoming George Friday for a conversation about how racism, economic exploitation and the influence of money in our political system, and warfare and militarism are linked and how efforts to address them must also remain linked as we strategize and work together to build a better future by opposing Dr. King’s “triplets of evil”.

George Friday grew up in a rural low-income community in North Carolina in the 60s. George works with grassroots .community organizations to provide leadership and skills training ranging from strategic planning and organizing to fundraising, marketing and community building with a particular focus on oppression dynamics and the role of “privilege” in transforming power dynamics leading to broad, deep economic and social justice change. She holds degrees in Political Science, Economics, and African American Studies from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, from which she graduated in 1982. George was the fundraiser for SANE (then SANE/FREEZE, now National Peace Action) in the latter half of the 1980s and Development Director, then Assistant Director of the Piedmont Peace Project in North Carolina in the first half of the 1990s. She directed a National Office of Juvenile Justice project from 2000-2004. George served as co-chair of UFPJ from 2005 to 2008. She began working as National Field Organizer for the Bill of Rights Defense Committee/Defending Dissent Foundation in 2008. George was one of the founding members of Move to Amend in 2009. Since 2017, George has been staff to NC Peace Action and UFPJ.

About NHPA’s bi-weekly Zoom Peace & Justice Conversation Series: 2020’s upheavals brought us to a new moment of reckoning and possibility. How do we want to live in the world? What do we value? How can we make the changes we’ve been yearning for? NH Peace Action has been engaged in working for change for decades. We’d like to bring you into these conversations about issues and options for the future.  There is no charge to attend, but your contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated.
