FW: Momentum for the UFPJ September Mobilization is building!


ACTION ALERT * UNITED FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE | 212-868-5545 | Click to subscribe

Dear Friends,

Recent developments in the anti-war movement have brought new energy and focus to the call for ending the war in Iraq:
• the Out Of Iraq Caucus has been formed by members of Congress;
• the AFL-CIO passed a resolution calling for a rapid withdrawal from Iraq;
• new public opinion polls show flagging approval of President Bush and more opposition to the war in Iraq than ever before; and
• Cindy Sheehan and other Gold Star Parents for Peace & military families at Camp Casey in Crawford, TX have received great publicity, raising the visibility of the anti-war movement in the media and drawing support from people around the globe.

The UFPJ September 24-26 Mobilization in Washington, D.C. is coming at just the right time! We are poised to tap into the broad antiwar sentiment in every corner of the country and to bring massive numbers of people into the streets of Washington…but we can’t do it without your support!

With just a month remaining before the UFPJ September Mobilization, we have an incredible amount of work to do, and we need your help to make this mobilization a success!

Here’s how you can support the UFPJ September Mobilization in Washington, D.C. on September 24-26:

1. Donate Now.
Now, more than ever, we need you to make the most generous contribution possible in support of our work. This mobilization could be the biggest ever, and in order to maximize our outreach we need to be able to pay for posters, flyers, buttons, stickers, and other materials. We also need to pay for the stage and sound equipment, port-o-johns, and other items that will help make the weekend a success. Please give as much money as you can afford — we will use it efficiently and effectively.

2. Become a Sustainer.
By becoming a sustainer, you will not only support the September Mobilization, you will provide ongoing support that will enable us to follow-up on the momentum generated by the UFPJ September Mobilization.

3. Offer Housing or Transportation.
There are many people from outside of the D.C. area who want to participate in the UFPJ September Mobilization, but who cannot afford to pay for travel expenses. If you live in the D.C. area and have a spare room or couch to offer, please post it on our Housing board If you’re driving or your member group is chartering a bus and you have an extra seat, please post it on our Transportation board.

4. Volunteer.
If you are coming to D.C. during September 24-26, we will need your help! Please sign up to volunteer in D.C. during the weekend of the September Mobilization. You can also volunteer today by downloading leaflets and distributing them in your community.

Thank you for being part of the peace movement. We couldn’t do this important work without your help. And thank you in advance for your generous support!

Yours, for peace and justice,

Leslie Cagan
National Coordinator
