If you could hang one banner in front of Nancy Pelosi at the upcoming Democratic National Convention, what would you want it to say? If you could chant one slogan at John McCain during the Republican National Convention, what would you want to express?

You can help us make the peace presence at the upcoming DNC and RNC conventions anything but conventional. We know you're full of great ideas--thousands of you stepped up when we asked for your thoughts about Afghanistan, and we are so grateful for your generous insights. You can read the powerful results of that survey here. Now we need your help with the conventions--click here to send us your thoughts, slogans, lyrics, visual ideas and other creative brainstorms for CODEPINK's contribution to the DNC and RNC. If we choose one of your ideas, we'll send you a CODEPINK water bottle!

We also need your financial help to keep our message of peace at the conventions visible and vibrant. Not only will your donations defray the cost of our giant pink slips and “I Miss America” banners--they will also give local CODEPINK coordinators who cannot afford to travel to Denver and St. Paul the opportunity to attend, and later bring what they learned back to their own communities.

Huge corporations have given over $100 million to fund the conventions. These include AT&T and Comcast, which just got congressional immunity for illegally tapping our phones; military contractors like Lockheed Martin; and dirty energy companies like ConocoPhillips (oil) and Xcel Energy (nuclear). Your funds and ideas will help counter the big business influence with the clear, honest voice of the peace movement.

Thank you for sharing your unconventional wisdom!

P.S. One of our beloved local CODEPINK coordinators, Annie Katz, passed away last month. We are heartbroken that Annie will not be able to join us at the DNC/RNC--she would have loved every minute, and would have brought so much inspiration and spirit to the table. Annie's family is honoring her memory by creating the Annie B. Katz Creative Activist Fund, which sponsors weeklong stays at the CODEPINK house for political artists. To find out more about Annie and how to contribute to the fund, please click here.
