Truthdig Santa Fe Retreat May 12 - May 16, 2012

Posted on Mar 29, 2013

Santa Fe, New Mexico, is a place of unsurpassed source of nature and renewal. It's the same landscape that inspired painters, poets and writers for generations to help us explore current problems and travel paths to a better future.

With America in crisis, Truthdig led a rare opportunity for leaders and other concerned people to take stock of this hard time in our nation's history and assess the prospects for progressive change, all while enjoying the natural beauty Santa Fe has the offer.

Speakers including Rep. Dennis Kucinich, award-winning actress and best-selling author Shirley MacLaine, as well as Truthdig contributors Chris Hedges, Robert Scheer and Col. Ann Wright led a series of discussions. (Move mouse over speakers photos for more details on their talks.)
