Diana Oestreich is an author, veteran, activist, peacemaker, and Lake Superior College graduate.

She served as a combat medic for 397 days on the battlefield of the Iraq war. She earned her nursing degree from Lake Superior College, working with hospice and cancer patients before becoming a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner connecting healthcare to advocating in the justice system.

Her book Waging Peace: One Soldier’s Story of Putting Love First was Amazon’s #1 new release in war and peace. Waging Peace exposes the false divide between loving our country and living out our higher call to love our enemies–whether we perceive our enemy as the neighbor with an opposing political viewpoint, a religion that is different than ours, or the person born across a border. By showing that us-versus-them is a false choice, this book will inspire each of us to choose love over fear. Showing us how to link arms and fight together for the common good that we know is possible instead of burning down the bridges between us; because the good that is possible together is worth waging peace for!

She empowers us to identify our own rural, urban, political, or religious divides to cross our own “enemy lines” in order to remake the world and heal all that’s tearing us apart. Speaking across the country, whether in Iran, Iraq or at her son’s middle school in Minnesota, from schools to Synagogues and alongside fellow activist Dr. Berenice King commemorating her Father’s work for Justice and Peace.

Diana is the founder of Waging Peace Project, a movement activating everyday people to commit acts of courage right where we live to transform the world and disrupt violence; because Justice and Joy cannot wait.

Diana, her partner Jake and their two sons, Bridger and Zelalem live along the shores of Lake Superior on Ojibwe land. They are an Ethiopian-American family woven together through adoption and a shared love for bad jokes and competitive card games.
