UFPJ’s workshop, “Uniting Our Strategies to Stop War and Save the Planet” will be part of the NYC Climate Convergence for People, Planet & Peace Over Profit, on Saturday, September 20.Monday, September 22, from 10 am – 4 pm, UFPJ will host a Peace & Justice Assembly at SEIU Local 1199 in midtown Manhattan, where we hope that as many UFPJ affiliates as possible will join us to talk with each other about how to tackle the overwhelming tangle of brinkmanship, violence, and wars that challenge us.
