Jobs, Peace and Justice NOW!
There are critical moments when action by the people shifts the course of history. With YOUR help, this could be one of those moments. But it won’t happen with wishful thinking. It needs us ALL to get involved. SO – get on a bus!
Wars and occupations are stealing money needed for jobs, education, health care, roads and more. It is time to bring the troops and money home and fund the things that make us truly secure: good jobs, education, health care, development of renewable resources, and affordable housing. On October 2 labor, peace and social justice forces from all over the country will converge in Washington DC. Help bring a strong peace message to the economic justice message of the main event.
ONE NATION WORKING TOGETHER is a historic coming together of movements for jobs, peace and justice organized by the AFL-CIO, SEIU, NAACP, National Council of La Raza, youth organizations, LGBT groups, and over 150 more groups.
TOGETHER THE PEACE TABLE DEMANDS: Good jobs and a sustainable economy Fund human needs not militarism. Bring the war money home! Immediate withdrawal of all troops, contractors and bases from
Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and Justice, civil rights and a renewable energy future at home.
DON’T HOPE FOR CHANGE - CREATE IT!!
