Three days after the 9/11 attacks, Rep. Barbara Lee cast the sole vote in Congress against the war in Afghanistan. She recognized that a “rush to launch precipitous military counterattacks runs too great a risk that more innocent men, women, children will be killed.”

Despite her isolation in Congress, Rep. Lee did not stand alone. Anti-war and other progressive organizations stood by her and mobilized powerful movements that, over the years, succeeded in transforming public opinion into widespread opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On Wednesday, 9/8, Amy Goodman will interview Rep. Lee, who will then engage in conversation with Tope Folarin (Institute for Policy Studies), Diane Randall (Friends Committee on National Legislation), and Stephen Miles (Win Without War) about the lessons they have all learned in the 20 years following 9/11.

This event is hosted by the Institute for Policy Studies, based in Washington, D.C.
