Our first speaker Titus Peachey will give a presentation about his nearly four decades of work to help clear millions of unexploded US bombs in Laos, and his more recent concerns about armed drone
warfare. Peachey began working in Laos in early 1981 under the auspices of Mennonite Central Committee where he and his wife met repeatedly with villagers who survived 9 years of US bombing. Peachey was active in the campaign to ban cluster munitions, and currently serves as the Chair of the Advisory Board for Legacies of War. Legacies of War has successfully advocated for a 10-fold increase in US funding for clearance of unexploded ordnance and victim assistance in Laos, moving the yearly US allocation from $3 million in 2008 to $30 million in 2016/2017.

Each Peace on Tap event will take place in our front room: Tigh Mhary
