A day to celebrate peace, not war
Kathy Kelly’s half century of activism has at times led her to war zones and federal prisons. She co-coordinates Voices for Creative Nonviolence, a campaign to end U.S. military and economic warfare. Nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize, she is a founding member of Voices in the Wilderness, and co-coordinator of Ban Killer Drones.

Clayborn Benson. Founder/director of Wis. Black Historical Society & Museum. He is a photographer, historian, and National Guard veteran who had a 40-year professional career as a WTMJ-TV photojournalist. He produced an award-winning documentary film, Black Communities. a three-part film on black housing, migration, settlements and trade skills in the United States, Wisconsin and Milwaukee. During the production of this documentary that Benson realized that the history and heritage of African American people in Wisconsin was widely scattered and poorly preserved. That became the catalyst for him founding the museum to preserve and maintain the culture of African American Wisconsinites.
