Democrat Bonnie Watson Coleman, who serves the 12th congressional district of New Jersey, will be honored for her leadership for peace in the U.S. House of Representatives at Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action’s annual meeting in Sunday, June 4.

The event will be held from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. at Christ Congregation, which is located at 50 Walnut Lane in Princeton. There is also an option to join the event via Zoom.

Trita Parsi, the executive vice president of the Quincy Institute and former director of the National Iranian American Council, will give the keynote address “Can America Again Be a Peacemaker?” Parsi recently authored the New York Times op-ed “The US is Not an Indispensable Peacemaker.”

Attendees are urged to wear masks and will be able to ask questions after Parsi’s talk. Viewers on Zoom will be able to see and hear what happens at the church and will be able to put questions in the chat box to be considered after the in-person questions have been answered.

“We are thrilled to offer this hybrid membership gathering that includes honoring such a strongly pro-peace legislator as Rep. Watson Coleman and hearing such an outstanding scholar and international relations expert, Dr. Trita Parsi,” said the Rev. Robert Moore, executive director of the Coalition for Peace Action.
