The Urgency of Pursuing Peace in Ukraine: Event with Keynote Speaker Cornel West

Tue October 3 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm EDT

As the war in Ukraine continues to intensify, with the growing danger of a direct U.S. confrontation with Russia, Peace in Ukraine and CODEPINK are launching a new action plan focusing on Congress called: “The Urgency of Pursuing Peace in Ukraine.” We will be asking our elected officials to answer the question: What is your peace plan?

The launch will feature an evening talk including Dr. Cornel West and other key speakers, followed the next morning by an interfaith press conference and a National Advocacy Day. While some advocates will be advocating on Capitol Hill, local constituents will be calling in or joining the DC meetings by zoom.

These events are designed to educate, inspire and mobilize people to action. We must get serious about putting this Congress and administration on notice that they must reverse their present course, which is taking us to the precipice of a nuclear confrontation. Instead, they must join us in calling for a ceasefire and negotiations to end this terrible conflict that is spinning out of control.

*MUST RSVP to enter in-person venue!
