The 2018 Regional Conference of North American Right Livelihood Award Laureates is happening in Santa Cruz, with many of the RLA laureates in attendance.

On Thursday night, Amy Goodman and Daniel Ellsberg will discuss war, peace, whistleblowing and the media in the age of Trump.

Daniel Ellsberg is a former Pentagon official, who followed his conscience and leaked secret information about the US government lies on the war in Vietnam – the so-called Pentagon papers. Ellsberg has ever since campaigned for peace and encouraged others to speak truth to power.
