FORTY STATES in the US today are in fiscal crisis. Not groovy. On October 2nd, One Nation Working Together will bring people from around the country to Washington to rally together for jobs, justice and peace. Convened by groups like the NAACP, unions, the US Student Association and the National Council of La Raza, it will be an inspirational and activating gathering that will out-do, in numbers and certainly in message, Glenn Beck's recent Restoring Honor rally.
CODEPINK is a key partner in the coalition, and one of 40 organizations in the Peace Table, the anti-war voice of One Nation, and we want you to be a PINK voice for peace that's loud, clear, creative, diverse, and dynamic on October 2nd!
There is still time to join us! Sign up today + we still have low cost and free housing available for those in need. Email Joan or call her at (202) 422-6275 for more info.
