today, and you'll find our
redesigned site, more vibrant and user-friendly than ever.
As Medea Benjamin says, "Our revamped, re-amped website
provides everyone with all the tools they need to organize
awesome meet-ups, call-ins, sit-ins, shout-outs, and teach-ins.
We're countering Bush's military surge with our own electrifying
surge of online activism."
some time getting to know our
new online home, and then make
plans to join us at our new home in DC. You are
welcome anytime to help us pressure Congress, but you are
especially welcome during Mother's Day
week from May 10-13. We are ramping up for an exciting
Mother's Day campaign--Women
Rock DC, four days of actions using our power as
women and mothers to bring our troops home. Just as Julia
Ward Howe asked the women of her day, the "women who
have hearts", to arise and end war, we are asking you
to arise with us and end the war in Iraq.
During her recent trip to Syria, Nancy Pelosi declared: "As
a mother, I will exhaust every remedy for peace!"
To help our first woman Speaker of the House do just that,
we will walk the halls of Congress with some of the most influential
women of our day on May 10 and 11, and spend Mother's Day
in Lafayette Park, hosting a family peace festival and the
first ever DC Kids March. We'll let the White House, Congress
and the media know that mothers and children demand peace.
What better way to live up to the ideals of the
original Mother's Day Proclamation?
you can't join us in DC, create
your own local Mother's Day event and encourage
the women of your community to rise up to bring our troops
home. You can also host
a Mother's Day movie night --invite friends, neighbors,
and family to your home to watch and discuss our powerful
Say No To War, Iraqi and American Women Speak Out,
an inspiring film about women saying no to war.
be sure to check out our great Mother's
Day gift package. Brunches and flowers are nice,
but peace is the most powerful and lasting gift of all.
