About the speakers:

Congressman-elect Seth Moulton represents Massachusetts’ 6th district, covering the North Shore and eastern Merrimac Valley. Born and raised in northeastern Massachusetts, he attended Phillips Academy Andover and Harvard University on scholarships and student loans. After graduating from Harvard in 2001 with a degree in physics, Moulton joined the United States Marine Corps, where he served four tours of duty in Iraq as an infantry officer between 2003 and 2008. After leaving the Marine Corps in 2008, Moulton returned to Harvard and earned degrees from the Business School and Kennedy School of  Government. Congressman-elect Moulton made veterans’ health care a priority during his campaign, and will continue to do so in Congress.

Susan Hackley is Managing Director of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, a consortium program of Harvard, MIT, and Tufts. A graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School, her interests include the role of the media in shaping and reporting on conflict, the overlap between the fields of negotiation and nonviolent action, and the need for civilian Americans and military Americans to explore and celebrate their shared values and have better conversations about war. She co-founded an Internet company (Givenation.com) that enabled people to connect with causes they care about, worked as a policy analyst and speechwriter, and served as Communications Director for the Massachusetts Democratic Party. Hackley was Chair of the Alliance for Peacebuilding in Washington, DC. She is producing a documentary film called “A Child’s Guide to War”, about the impact of war on America’s children and families.
