WESTHEIMER PEACE SYMPOSIUM

The Symposium has hosted such nationally-known speakers as Arun Gandhi, Walter Wink, Elise Boulding, Stephen Collett, Chief Oren Lyons, Colman McCarthy, George McGovern, Elias Chacour, Le Ly Hayslip, Baldemar Valasquez, Julian Bond, Jan Schlictmann, Winona LaDuke, Robert Kaplan, Robert Kennedy, Jr., Sarah Chayes, Alicia Partnoy, and Richard Rodriguez.
The symposium is free and open to the public. No tickets or advance reservations are required.
