the midst of election madness we need to stop worrying and start
acting. Many of you have been spreading the word with our "I
am a Voter for Peace"
pledge and with Tuesday around the corner now is the time to bring
peace to the polls. Here are some effective and fun ways you
can paint the polls pink:
If you haven't pledged to vote for peace
it today (there are prizes!)
Vote early! There are only a few days
left but every little bit helps -- visit govote.org
to see where you can vote early
Increase the peace vote by calling
women around the country and encouraging them to vote. We're partnering
with Women's Voices Women's Votes and we will send you a
short script and 25 phone numbers to call this weekend! How inspiring
