Ramsey Clark 85th Birthday / IAC 20th Anniversary Gala Invitation

5pm HORSD'OEUVRES
6pm PROGRAM & DINNER BUFFET

RSVP - Tickets must be reserved in advance

Ramsey Clark remains a unique political figure in the United States. At great sacrifice he has consistently opposed U.S. intervention abroad and fought for justice at home. He has defended countless individuals and organizations, targets of racism or repression, many who might have otherwise stood alone. From prisoners on Texas death row, to the Attica prison rebels, to Native American leader Leonard Peltier, to Jamil Al-Amin, the Plowshare defendants, Lori Berenson in Peru, to prisoners in the Philippines, Turkey, ­Pakistan, and Egypt — Ramsey Clark has been there for them. He has opposed nuclear weapons, U.S.

Ramsey Clark remains a unique political figure in the United States. At great sacrifice he has consistently opposed U.S. intervention abroad and fought for justice at home. He has defended countless individuals and organizations, targets of racism or repression, many who might have otherwise stood alone. From prisoners on Texas death row, to the Attica prison rebels, to Native American leader Leonard Peltier, to Jamil Al-Amin, the Plowshare defendants, Lori Berenson in Peru, to prisoners in the Philippines, Turkey, ­Pakistan, and Egypt —  Ramsey Clark has been there for them. He has opposed nuclear weapons, U.S. bases, drone wars and every U.S. aggression, including the most recent dangerous threat of a new war on Iran.

Ramsey Clark has remained a stalwart for me,” writes political prisoner Lynne Stewart. “Our professional regard from 1994 has continued to grow and our personal relationship can only be described as loving – not in the Hollywood sense, but in the love one shares with a comrade, a brother. A tribute to him cannot hope to measure up to the stature he has maintained for a lifetime: my friend and warrior in the fight against injustice, my dear compadre Ramsey Clark.”

The International Action Center originated 20 years ago out of two small rooms in Ramsey Clark’s law office. From then to now, the work of the IAC has been carried out by a dedicated staff of volunteers, working in coalitions and networks with other people’s organizations. The IAC mobilizes for change through rallies, demonstrations, classes, fact sheets, books, videos, internet, web sites, intern programs, skill training, and more to challenge corporate rule and disinformation. Our offices are used for free on a daily basis by many progressive organizations.

The IAC is committed to building broad-based grassroots coalitions to oppose U.S. wars abroad while fighting against racism, anti-Muslim bigotry, growing repression and mass incarceration, and the economic exploitation of workers here at home. With every mobilization or campaign, the IAC strives to draw from the leadership, connect the struggles, and bring together communities of color, women, lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people, youth and students, immigrant and workers' organizations in order build a progressive movement for social justice and change. Ultimately it is our goal to work towards the liberation and freedom of all peoples living in the U.S. and around the world.
