Other special guests included Claudette Werleigh, former Prime Minister of Haiti and currently the General Secretary of Pax Christi International; Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly; filmmaker Bud Ryan; Mike Schloss from the Ignatian Solidarity Network; and Pax Christi's representative at the U.N., Madeline Labriola;

A note from Pax Christi says walk-in registrations will be taken today (Friday) from 3-7 p.m.

And if you can't be there physically, you can be there virtually:
