As the war in Afghanistan continues into its 16th year, the United States continues down a course of continual warfare and blank-check funding of the American military. Use of force often seems as though it’s both a first and last resort. But the little-known US Institute of Peace maintains an important place in the American diplomatic sphere.
As the federal budget debate gets underway, the US Institute of Peace’s funding is on the chopping block. Today we will talk with Rev. Michael Neuroth, Policy Advocate for International Issues in the Washington office of the United Church of Christ. Mike will fill us in on this important institution, its Christian beginnings, and how its future can be bolstered by people like you. If you believe in peacemaking, listen carefully to what Mike has to say.
