What would Memorial Day look like if we commemorated all the victims of war, and not just the military fallen from our own country? What would it be like to honor all the dead and acknowledge all the destruction wrought around the world by U.S. military actions?
Join us to explore this theme, as we pair Americans, mostly military veterans, with speakers who have been on the receiving end of U.S. military aggression.
