In June, Bradley Manning, 25, the army private who caused the greatest security breach in US history by giving hundreds of thousands of classified war and diplomatic documents to Wikileaks, will go on trial at Fort Meade, MD.
2013 is a significant year in my work for justice. It was 50 years ago the National March on Washington made history and Dr. King wrote his famous letter from the Birmingham Jail. Fifty years ago, the Washington Peace Center was founded. Twenty-five years ago, I served as the Coordinator of the Washington Peace Center. Ten years ago, United for Peace and Justice was born, a campaign in which I continue to serve as a National Convener. One year ago, I joined the Peace Center Advisory Council.
