Americans for Peace Now presents “Vision of Peace Celebration” on May 3.
I have served on the board of directors of this important organization for many years, alongside my good friend Michael Walzer. I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Michael to be recognized by APN. His writings have provided the road map to lead us to a just solution for Israelis and Palestinians, one that is humane, moral and secure for all.
And what a wonderful choice in selecting Lara Friedman to be honored alongside Michael. Lara is one of the most indefatigable, smart, and accomplished people with whom I have worked. While serving as APN’s Director of Policy and Government Relations, her research, reports and policy work were critical to APN’s visibility and success on Capitol Hill and informing and influencing foreign policy.
It will be a fantastic opportunity to share a memorable evening with friends, recognizing the important work and accomplishments of two uniquely thoughtful and dedicated people – Michael Walzer and Lara Friedman.
