Host Stephanie Potter will talk with Elizabeth Stinson about her work as a military trauma therapist. She has used her expertise with military regulations and her counseling and diplomacy skills to advise soldiers and their families on their options for obtaining administrative discharges from the military. So far Elizabeth has succeeded in helping some 1500 soldiers to leave the military. Also a mediator, Elizabeth worked many years with several tribes, as a UN certified forensics expert. She served in California as the director of the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County, and was recipient of the 2006 Visionary Peacemaker Award from the Agape Foundation and the honoree of the 2008 Jack Green Civil Liberties Award with the American Civil Liberties Union. She has dedicated her life to ensure that care and due process are provided to those who are most vulnerable, and through peaceful diplomacy, has offered humane solutions to break down the prejudice against indigenous peoples, at-risk youth and soldiers.
