Violence is not the Answer, Even for Ukraine

  • Tuesday, November 29, 2022
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • A Virtual Event

 Please join me at my presentation at the AHA's Speaking of Humanism series this evening. - Randy Best

Updates from American Humanist Association

Humanists across history have tackled complex questions about sovereignty, self-defense, and violence. On Tuesday, November 29th at 6:30-8pm ET, Randy Best will facilitate a thought-provoking discussion that invites participants to consider the conditions for a “just war”. Most recently, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and Ukraine’s vigorous resistance dominate the news cycles. It has become clear that it was an unwarranted act of aggression by Russia and Ukraine’s actions are portrayed as heroic in the media. Randy will discuss how responding to violence with violence is never justified as violence only increases human suffering and war is a tragedy for all involved. 

Join the American Humanist Association's November Speaking of Humanism event.
