Organizing for Peace in 2016 and Beyond

United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) is looking to the future and we can see that maintaining our network of peace and justice groups will be crucial in the coming year. As you may know, we recently co-hosted a call with Progressive Democrats of America that featured Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies, with crucial information on the widening wars in the Middle East. If you missed it, you can click here to listen to a recording. Please donate now, so that we can continue to organize opportunities like this. UFPJ is supporting the Peace and Planet international call for local actions on December 10, Human Rights Day, to highlight the “human right to peace” and to demand that the crisis in Syria and other ongoing global conflicts be resolved through diplomacy. UFPJ member organizations’ events are listed at: As we move into 2016 we foresee as a great a need as ever for our network to continue. U.S. militarism and wars have sowed chaos across the Middle East and beyond with devastating consequences. These wars increase the danger of use of nuclear weapons and are sabotaging global efforts to address the climate crisis. Please consider becoming a monthly sustainer, so that UFPJ will be here for you in 2016.
