A U.S. army colonel turned peace activist is set to speak at City College on Feb. 27 on drones and women in the military.

Colonel Ann Wright (ret.) served in the military for nearly thirty years, and went into the US Foreign Service in 1987.  She has served as U.S. Deputy Ambassador in Sierra Leone, Micronesia, Afghanistan, and Mongolia, and eventually resigned from her position in protest of the invasion of Iraq in 2003.  Wright wrote a book with co-author Susan Dixon, titled “Dissent: Voices of Conscience,” which was released in 2008.

Wright will be speaking at City College on Feb. 27 at noon in BUS 223.  Her talk is set to cover her experience in diplomacy, women in the military, and the use of drones.

Students requiring accommodation, please call DSPS 916-558-2087.
