Help continue the work of the nation’s largest grassroots peace network which began 60 years ago in New York City as the Committee for a SANE Nuclear Policy and merged with the Nuclear Freeze movement in the 1980’s. The work of Peace Action is needed today more urgently than ever, and our influence is growing. In the recent National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) vote, Senator Gillibrand and nine New York Congressional Representatives, Clarke, Espaillat, Jeffries, Meng, Nadler, Serrano, Slaughter, Tonko, and Velazquez, voted no on the $700 billion bill to fund U.S. endless war and militarism. This is the momentum we have to keep going, and it is through the support and involvement of each of you that we will continue to do just that.
We look forward to celebrating 60 years of peace activism with you and hope to see you there.
