On May 25, 2023, FAN hosted a webinar, “Peacebuilding, Nonviolent Resistance, and Unarmed Civilian Protection in Ukraine,” seeking to understand and imagine how such practices can be advanced to end the war and build a just peace in Ukraine. Moderated by FAN Just Peace Fellow, Eli McCarthy, our panel of speakers taught us about different nonviolent ways people are responding to the trauma and violence of war.

We invite you to watch the recording of the event below or on our YouTube channel.
