World Beyond War Central Florida

Chapter Coordinator: Alan Mytty
Location: The Villages, FL, USA

The World BEYOND War Central Florida Chapter meets regularly on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 3:00 p.m. at the Belvedere Branch of the Sumter County Public Library, 325 Belvedere Boulevard, The Villages, FL 32162.

Next meeting is Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 3:30pm at the Pinellas Library, Gold Dome Building Conference Room 102, 7375 Powell Rd #100, Wildwood, FL, 34785 (note the location & time change this month). This month’s meeting will focus on the current situation in Venezuela and a brief history of U.S. involvement in Venezuela and Latin America. We’ll be joined by Harriet Heywood, a Florida-based activist with People Demanding Action and the National Coordinator with Trade Justice Alliance. The event is free & open to the public. RSVP here.

Our events highlight a range of topics related to war and peace, and the steps needed to move us towards a world beyond war. At our meetings, we always make time for an educational presentation, such as a guest lecture, powerpoint slideshow, or documentary film, followed by group discussion. Past events have focused on issues such as the environmental impact of war, the economic cost of militarism, the peacebuilding process, and the efficacy of nonviolence.

All are welcome. Contact Al at for more information about our next meeting and how to get involved.

    • Sorry for not responding sooner. We had company and I was out of town for work. Could we set a time to talk?
