Dear Peace and Justice Activist,
This August is shaping up into an extraordinary month for action! Last week UFPJ brought you information about Nuclear Free Future Month with opportunities to phase out nuclear power and start negotiations on a treaty to abolish nuclear weapons. We owe it to the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to the future environmental health of our planet to oppose nuclear weapons and power. Your donations to UFPJ will allow us to continue delivering news and action opportunities like this, which are of vital importance to you and your organizations across the country.
Also this August, the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington will give voice to demands to end the plague of war, the injustice of economic, racial and social inequality, and the destruction of our planet. In the wake of the tragic outcome in the Trayvon Martin case we must be connected with others standing up against racial and social injustice, poverty and economic inequality, environmental destruction and climate collapse in order to build our movement for peace and justice through broad-based collective action. And let’s not forget attack on the voting rights act, moral Mondays in North Carolina and Dream Defenders as exciting examples of nonviolent resistance building to Aug 24, and pushing to fulfill Dr. King’s dream.
We know you count on UFPJ to keep you informed and connected. Right now we are facing a significant increase in costs for our email and web communications. Please give as generously as you can so that UFPJ can continue to send out action alerts, newsletters, and legislative updates. UFPJ communications promote and support the activities of our members groups.
Thank you for your work and your support!
The UFPJ Steering Committee
