On June 15, 2023, Franciscan Action Network (FAN) hosted a webinar on Ukraine welcoming a panel of speakers considering the common narratives influencing the war and the propaganda being used to distort the truth. Discussion of what message might facilitate an end to the war led into ways to support opportunities for diplomatic negotiations. You can watch the recording of this webinar on our YouTube Channel or below.
FAN Just Peace Fellow Eli S. McCarthy, Ph.D. moderated this panel of speakers:
