Peace & Justice Conversations: Stories From a Lifetime of Activism

August 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Please join us for an evening conversation with lifetime activist John Lamperti.

For most of my professional life I taught mathematics at Dartmouth College. In the late 1960s the Vietnam war became a major distraction, and I did what I could to fight against it.  I had (mostly) mathematical sabbaticals in the USSR (1970) and in Denmark (1972-73); apart from those and while still teaching I worked with the AFSC and with PSR on the war and also on nuclear arms race issues.

Then in 1985 I hitchhiked on an AFSC trip to Central America, and that’s been a major focus ever since. I spent half of 1990 in Nicaragua trying to make myself useful, observed several post-civil war elections in El Salvador and learned a lot about that country, and I’ve written many things hoping to bring their reality home to us (North) Americans.  I spent 10 years (off and on) writing a biography of a fine man I learned about: Enrique Alvarez Cordova: Life of a Salvadoran Revolutionary and Gentleman.
And of course I’ve been a more or less active member of Peace Action since it was founded as the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy (SANE) so many years ago.
