In the name of national security, our coun­try's policies  are caus­ing multiple, sys­temic cri­ses.  These include cli­mate ca­tas­trophe, ex­treme inequality, con­stant wars, deep-seated racism, mass incar­ceration, and a militarized cul­ture.

Only large social movements can remove these barriers to genuine security and construct a society based on Sustainable Security.

This conference will explore three pillars of sustainable national and world security:

  • A fairly-shared global prosperity based on economic, social, and racial justice
  • Emergency action to address climate change and build a new, fossil-fuel-free energy system
  • A Foreign Policy for All based on even-handed diplomacy, ending our disastrous military interventions, abolition of nuclear weapons, and reclaiming war resources for the urgent needs that face our world
