Last week, on
extremely short notice, 1,000 of you sent a white rose to encourage Obama to speak out about the atrocities in Gaza. Thank you for bringing such a moving and
beautiful action to full bloom. See the photos
here. Now, let's put pink ribbons around our fingers to remind Obama to keep his promises for peace!
During his campaign, Obama promised to end the war in Iraq, close Guantanamo, and end torture, among other commitments for
peace. Click here to sign up to remind Obama to keep his word and deliver the change our country
and the world so desperately needs.
We are thrilled to bring our message of YES WE CAN END WAR to the Inauguration. As you read this, two hundred CODEPINKers are getting onto trains and planes and streaming toward Washington,
DC. Our women can't wait to dance the "Yes We Can-Can" and be a vibrant pink presence at balls and other events. You can count on
CODEPINK to be a visible voice for peace at this historic transition.
This nation, and our friends around the world, have been
inspired by the pledges for peace that Obama made on the campaign trail.
Watch our video to see and hear Obama's uplifting promises and join us in holding
him to his word. Pass it on to your
During inauguration week, we will tie pink ribbons on
thousands of eventgoers' cold, hopeful fingers (above, Patricia demonstrates on the charming Noah Wyle). Obama supporters will flash their ribboned peace signs to
remind Obama to stand up for peace, and then take them home as a personal reminder to stand up. Now there's an inauguration souvenir with a purpose! You can order your own online here!
Thank you for holding Obama to his promises for change. We promise you we
will continue to find new, creative, effective ways to make those promises a reality.
With hope and determination,
Audrey, Dana, Deidra, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Janet, Jean, Jodie, Liz, Lori,
Lydia, Medea, Nancy, Paris, and Rae
P.S. You can continue to show that you will not be silent about the siege in Gaza by calling your
representative at 202-224-3121 and asking her/him to co-sponsor Rep. Dennis Kucinich's resolution calling for "an immediate and
unconditional ceasefire" and "unrestricted humanitarian access" to the occupied Gaza Strip.
