Injecting the Peacebuilding Voice into US CVE Policy

Broadcast on August 11, 2016
With Jim Cason

Learn about the challenges of advocating for peacebuilding approaches to violent extremism with the US government. Jim explains the Quaker perspective on nonviolence, and how that translates into FCNL's advocacy for a US foreign policy that emphasizes addressing the root causes of violence, using non-military forms of engagement. He also discusses how ordinary citizens can use their voices to influence US policy in this critical area.
