Colonel Ann Wright Lecture
 
Wright has worked with anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, most notably by helping organize the Camp Casey demonstration outside George W. Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch in August 2005, and by accompanying the southern leg of the Bring Them Home Now bus tour. Wright has willingly been arrested while taking part in anti-war demonstrations.

On October 19, 2005, Wright interrupted a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, shouting at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, "Stop the war! Stop the killing!" On September 11, 2007, Wright was arrested, and later convicted, for disrupting a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing at which General David Petraeus and Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker were testifying. Wright served as one of five judges at the January 2006 sessions of the International Commission of Inquiry On Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration. She traveled to Cuba in January 2007 to protest torture at Guantanamo.

She was also one of 3 recipients of the first annual Truthout Freedom and Democracy Awards. In 2008, she co-authored the book Dissent, Voices of Conscience with Susan Dixon.
