UPDATE: August Is For Action!

United For Peace and Justice is taking part in Peace and Planet Summer by participating in commemorations of the 70th anniversaries of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and supporting the Iran Nuclear Accords. We’re also re-launching the UFPJ newsletter, which we’re inviting you to be a part of. Please read more about each of these endeavors in our brief below.

August is Nuclear Free Future Month

Please post your event or action in support of the abolition of all nuclear weapons on our international events calendar at nuclearfreefuture.org. Find an event near you, using our search function. Commemorations of all kinds will be taking place around the world throughout the month of August. Over 50 events have already been posted and we’re looking forward to seeing yours added to the list.

Sign and Share Our Petition to Support the Iran Deal and Prevent War

Finally, the Administration has come up with a diplomatic solution that will strengthen international oversight to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program remains peaceful. Meanwhile, many members of Congress would rather use sanctions and threats of war to deal with Iran’s nuclear program, instead of international cooperation. UFPJ has joined together with leading anti-war/peace and justice groups to sponsor a petition calling on Congress to uphold the deal that was struck with Iran and to respect diplomacy. Please sign and share the petition, which has already gathered over 220,000 signatures.

Submit Your Event or Story to Our Newsletter

We know that peace groups are persevering all across the country. We want to hear from you and spread news of your work. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a newsletter and we’re looking to get one up and running again featuring the hard work of UFPJ’s hundreds of member groups around the country. Click here to find out what kinds of stories we’re looking to share and the basic criteria we’ve established, so that all of our member groups can be featured. We are excited about starting our Newsletter again to feature the hard work of UFPJ’s hundreds of member groups. We all know that local activism can feel lonely, and we are not always aware that we are all part of a larger movement, all working toward the greater goal of peace and justice and a better tomorrow. Peace groups are persevering all across the country. We want to hear from you and get the news out about your work!

We want to help everyone in our coalition stay connected. You can sign up instantly on this form.
Thank you for taking the time to hear from us. Now, tell us about what you’re up to! All we are saying is give peace a chance!
