Mary Dean is Organizer at World Beyond War. She worked previously for various social justice and antiwar organizations, including leading delegations to Afghanistan, Guatemala, and Cuba. Mary also traveled on human rights delegations to several other war zones, and has done volunteer accompaniment in Honduras. In addition she worked as a paralegal for prisoner rights, including initiating a bill in Illinois to limit solitary confinement. In the past, Mary spent six months in federal prison for nonviolently protesting the U.S. Army School of the Americas, or School of Assassins as it is commonly known in Latin America. Her other experience involves organizing various nonviolent direct actions, and going to jail a number of times for civil disobedience to protest nuclear weapons, end torture and war, close down Guantanamo, and walk for peace with 300 international activists in Palestine and Israel. She also walked 500 miles to protest war from Chicago to the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis in 2008 with Voices for Creative Nonviolence. Mary Dean is based in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.

Our next meeting is scheduled for April 20th from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at 8th Day, 205 W. Monroe, Chicago. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Feel free to bring a sandwich or snack for yourself to eat during the meeting.

We also will have a tax day event with a penny poll at the Federal Plaza post office on April 18th from 11 am to 1 pm. In addition we are working on a city resolution to decrease military spending.

Please let me know if you are able to attend the next meeting. Thank you again, and I look forward to continuing our work together to abolish war!
