The complete presentation by Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, associate professor of justice and peace studies at The University of St. Thomas, St. Paul MN, spoke at the Every Church A Peace Church January Potluck, January 13, 2014. The group met at the Spirit of St. Stephen’s Catholic Community. The event was cosponosred by Twin Cities Peace Campaign and the WAMM End War Committee.

Nelson-Pallmeyer founded MN ASAP (Minnesota Arms Spending Alternative Project), a non-partisan citizen-based initiative using a simple resolution process to build political support to shift federal spending priorities from war to meeting essential needs. MN ASAP’s goal is to build sufficient political power and influence statewide from representatives at all levels of government and from non-governmental organizations and civic groups to effectively demand a shift in priorities from war spending to meeting essential needs.
