6 PM Potluck, 7 PM presentation
MDUUC – OWL ROOM, 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek
Local activists know Budd MacKenzie from his years-long campaign to bring clothes and supplies to the people of Afghanistan, who have been living in a war zone since the war with Russia in the 1990’s. With an army of volunteers, Budd and his NGO, Trust in Education, package up supplies of all kinds, especially clothing and school materials, and ship these goods on US Army planes to these war-torn people. A recipient of MDPJC Local Heroes of Peace award, Budd is the best of us!
Budd has written his memoirs in the hopes of inspiring other citizen activists. Says Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner, on the book’s back cover:
“Budd MacKenzie’s book is more than a chronicling of his extraordinary humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan since 2005, which my foundation has been proud to support. Budd’s book is a passionate cry against apathy and insidious power. It is a call to action In his own works, MacKenzie, an ordinary person moved to service by a deep sense of good will and moral urgency. He asks us to join the struggle against poverty and human suffering.”
