End the Empire - Close U.S. Overseas Bases

Activists outside Beale AFB in northern California hold banner where recon drones, U-2 spy planes and 'missile defense' radar are stationed.

The US military empire is costing our nation and arm and a leg and is a direct reason why social progress and our physical infrastructure are being dismantled.

A National Conference on U.S. Foreign Military Bases on January 12-14, 2018 will be held at the Learning Commons Town Hall, University of Baltimore (1415 Maryland Avenue) in Maryland.

A slew of excellent speakers will be headlining the event including:

  • Ajamu Baraka, 2016 Green Party candidate for vice president of the United States; President of Black Alliance for Peace
  • Ann Wright, Retired US Army Colonel, and former US diplomat; Leading member of Veterans For Peace and CODEPINK
  •  David Vine, Associate Professor of Anthropology at American University in Washington, DC, and author of Base Nation
