CODEPINK and CodePink/Westchester!
CODEPINK: Women for Peace is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities. We reject the Bush administration's fear-based politics that justify violence, and instead call for policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.
The women of CODEPINK address serious issues in a multitude of creative – and sometimes outrageous – ways, always bringing into play the sensibilities of respect, compassion and interconnectedness. We have redefined the color pink as one of power and action.
There are over 250 local chapters of CODEPINK throughout the country and around the world. Through vigils, marches, rallies, non-violent civil disobedience, concerts and art exhibits, many thousands of us have loudly opposed the war and occupation in Iraq and have stood up for a variety of issues at the intersection of peace and justice.
Join some of the country’s most creative and politically active women as we tackle important needs in our communities and our world. Help us protect civil liberties and promote life-affirming economic polices. Put on your pinkest, most powerful clothes and add your voice to the growing chorus at one of our many actions.
