Announcing a Speaking & Concert Tour with Conscientious Objector Mario Cardozo

FOR Peace Presence is excited to announce a Fall U.S. Speaking and Concert Tour in collaboration with Mario Cardozo, conscientious objector and winner of the 2014 Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award! Mario will accept the award in Louisville, Kentucky, on August 28th, and go on to travel to Chicago, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Washington D.C. from there.

After declaring himself a Conscientious Objector at 18 years old, Mario began working with Acción Colectiva de Objetores y Objetoras de Consciencia (ACOOC – the Collective Action for Conscientious Objectors), to develop strategies in support of conscientious objection, anti-militarization, and active nonviolence in Colombia. Together, they have created and shared these ideas through theater and music presentations. The Colombian Supreme Court recently named Mario Colombia’s very first Conscientious Objector for non-religious reasons, a huge accomplishment. Mario is hoping to speak to, network and exchange ideas with public audiences, organizations and departments at universities involved with or interested in anti-militarization, music for social change, and youth movements.

  1. I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented on your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for novices.
    May just you please prolong them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
