Sun, 4/9, 5:00 pm — Jill Stein & Howie Hawkins on Ukraine & Peace  (Green Sunday) —

What constitutes a progressive position on the war in Ukraine?  What factors might bring about peace?  Should the United States continue to send military aid, and other support, to Ukraine?  What should be done about the parts of Ukraine currently occupied by Russian forces?  What should be done about NATO?
