Group Description

CODEPINK is a grassroots, women-initiated peace and social justice movement dedicated to ending the war in Iraq and to protecting our citizens from future unjust wars, in effort to redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities. Code Rose Baton Rouge follows CODEPINK in rejecting fear-based politics that justify violence. We call for policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.

CODEPINK Call To Action:
"We call on women around the world to rise up and oppose the war in Iraq. We call on mothers, grandmothers, sisters and daughters, on workers, students, teachers, healers, artists, writers, singers, poets, and every ordinary outraged woman willing to be outrageous for peace. Women have been the guardians of life-not because we are better or purer or more innately nurturing than men, but because the men have busied themselves making war. Because of our responsibility to the next generation, because of our own love for our families and communities and this country that we are a part of, we understand the love of a mother in Iraq for her children, and the driving desire of that child for life."—Starhawk
