I really appreciated the presentation by Father Roy Bourgeois last night at an event co-sponsored by the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice (ICPJ) and Veterans for Peace ( He emphasized solidarity, conscience and equality as he shared his life story, his work against the SOA/WHINSEC, and why he was dismissed as a Catholic priest because of his support for ordaining women.

A table was stacked with copies of Pink Smoke over the Vatican (DVD), Somos Una América (DVD), and My Journey from Silence to Solidarity (booklet).

“With injustice, silence is complicity.”
