Today we are confronted with a new reality. And we cannot sit back.
When we launched the Peace Pledge, we recognized that whichever pro-war candidate was elected, we would need to rebuild a strong movement for peace and justice, for the long term. The Peace Pledge campaign was designed to carry social movement organizing through at least the first 100 days of the next Presidency.
The results are in. Though the players have changed, the message and the struggles we are working to lift-up remain the same.
Sign the Peace Pledge and prepare to take action in your community. In the coming days, weeks and months, UFPJ will be providing information about action opportunities and educational materials for your use.
Take the Pledge to Hold the Next President Accountable to Peace
“Now that the voting is over, I pledge to continue organizing for peace. I know that voting alone cannot and will not end American’s perpetual wars, so I am recommitting myself to nonviolent direct action and movement building.
I will protest, vigil, lobby, sit-in, and take creative action to dismantle the war machine and build a culture of peace with racial, economic and social justice that redirects the billions spent by the Pentagon to fund crucial programs for our people, our communities and our planet.”
Here are a few things you can do to build this campaign.
