Dennis Kucinich to Give Lecture on Restoring Hope for America

Dennis Kucinich, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1997 to 2013, will deliver the 12th Annual Frank K. Kelly Lecture on Humanity’s Future at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8 at the Lobero Theatre in downtown Santa Barbara. The event is free and open to the public.

Kucinich’s lecture is titled “Restoring Hope for America’s Future through Developing a Culture of Peace.”

Kucinich is a passionate and articulate leader for peace and disarmament. He was a strong advocate in Congress to establish a U.S. Department of Peace, and was a leader in the efforts to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“We are pleased to welcome Dennis Kucinich to Santa Barbara for what is sure to be a thought-provoking look at America’s future,” said David Krieger, president of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. “He is an outstanding leader for peace who has important insights to share on building a Culture of Peace.”

It was recently announced that Kucinich, in a surprise move, will be a regular contributor to the Fox News Channel.

The Annual Frank K. Kelly Lecture on Humanity’s Future was established by the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation in 2001. Kelly was a founder and senior vice president of the foundation. His career included being a journalist, a soldier, a Neiman Fellow, a speechwriter for Harry Truman, assistant to the U.S. Senate majority leader and vice president of the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
