On October 2, U.S. local and national peace organizations will be a vital part of the coalition of progressive organizations marching in D.C. as One Nation Working Together.
Please contribute as generously as you can to support UFPJ's organizing for this demonstration and to ensure that our demands to end war, cut military spending, and fund jobs and human needs are heard.
The US military consumes over 50% of our national budget - tax dollars that are desperately needed here at home to save jobs and support families. The U.S. war machine is a huge contributor to climate change. With over 700 bases girdling the globe, the U.S. foreign policy of endless war has wreaked havoc on people around the world. To maintain a nuclear umbrella of intimidation, war makers continue to build new generations of expensive weapons that risk nuclear annihilation.
We must stop this madness! But the peace and anti-war movements cannot stop it alone. That is why UFPJ is working with hundreds of groups across the nation to take action to build a peoples' movement and to march in Washington on October 2.
It is time to stand up with our friends and allies in the labor, civil rights, immigrant rights and environmental movements. Please contribute as generously as you can to make this coordinated push for jobs, justice and peace a success.
Spread the word and organize where and when you can for the October 2 demonstration!
