Peaceful Skies Coalition invited groups from around the US to a gathering held in Taos, NM over the weekend of April 17 – 19, 2015. Representatives of the invited groups, participating both in person and through online meeting technology, presented their efforts to limit ongoing military activities as well as expansions underway in their communities and regions. Thanks to technical support from the University of New Mexico-Taos, in addition to the online meeting technology, much of the meeting was also live-streamed over the internet to the general public.
Below are links to the presentations at the gathering as well as links to each of the participating organizations.
