When she made this presentation she had just completed a three-month prison sentence for an act of civil disobedience to protest the U.S. drone program and its detrimental effect on civilians. Ms. Kelly recounts several peaceful protests in which she participated early in her life. She then explains why she feels she must continue to speak out against the use of military drones by sharing several stories regarding their use. Ms. Kelly is co-founder of Creative Non-Violence, based in Chicago. She has been to Afghanistan 14 times since 2010. As a war tax resister, she refuses to pay all forms of federal income tax.
