Guest Joe Marcinkowski is FPA Vice President and a committed anti-war activist



The Foreign Policy Alliance is a nonpartisan organization which formed in 2015 to educate and advocate across the political spectrum for a United States foreign policy that emphasizes diplomacy, law, and cooperation, rather than costly and counterproductive intervention.

Today's guest, Joseph Marcinkowski is the Vice President and a founding member of the.FPA  He brought the idea of a left-right alliance on foreign policy, inspired by Ralph Nader’s 2014 book Unstoppable, to the planning group that organized the 2015 Houston Peace and Justice Center conference, “Peace or Wars Without End?”  He earned a BA in Economics and History from City College NYC – CUNY, served in the U.S. Army, and worked in the fossil fuel industry for twenty six years, mostly outside the United States. As an activist, he is the Houston representative of the School of the Americas Watch (SOAW), an Executive Committee Member of the Houston Peace and Justice Center, as well as a member of Pax Christi and Veterans for Peace. Joe has been married to Laura Marcinkowski for fifty-two years and has three wonderful daughters and five fantastic grandchildren.
