Creating Leadership on Drone Warfare within the Faith Community

Since 2015, the Interfaith Network on Drone Warfare (INDW) held a national conference for religious leaders on drone warfare at Princeton Theological Seminary, co-sponsored 13 regional conferences on drone warfare, produced five 30-minute films on drone warfare for congregations, and promoted their use across the country.

The next phase of the work began July 15, 2018 and will be completed on February 1, 2021.

During this time period, the INDW will recruit people of faith across the US to commit to be leaders in working for change in drone policies. There will be a three-day national conference for these people of faith to equip them to do their work effectively.
