Brian Terrell will share his timely message that explores peacemaking as a vocation in a time of military and economic warfare, racism and environmental devastation.
Brian has been a part of the Catholic Worker movement for more than 40 years. A Green Bay native, Brian attended St Norbert College for a year before he joined the Catholic Worker movement in New York City in 1975 at the age of 19. In New York, Brian worked with Dorothy Day and Fr. Daniel Berrigan, among other great peacemakers and now lives at Strangers and Guests Catholic Worker Farm in Maloy, Iowa, where he and his wife Betsy raised two children.
Brian is a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence and travels around the United States and beyond, speaking and acting with communities that are working for justice and peace. In July, 2018, he returned from his sixth visit to Afghanistan. He has spent more than 2 years in jails and prisons as a result of these protests.
