He will also speak about the use of International law, the collective wisdom of many cultures and nations agreeing to the fundamental basic rights of life.

Elliott Adams has transformed from a soldier to a nonviolent warrior, dedicating his life to stopping all war. He served as army paratrooper in Vietnam, Japan, Korea, and Alaska; National President of Veterans for Peace; President of school board, Mayor, President of Rotary, and Master of the Masonic Lodge.
