Lobbying for Peace NO WAR IN IRAN
CODEPINKers hit the Senate office buildings in the morning with informational handouts
regarding SRes 580! We all share overwhelming concern for our local communities and the effects of wars on our individual terms.We have teachers that share the sad stories of no MONEY for Books! We have mothers that have incurred personal financial loss to join CODEPINK to make the VOICE OF Peace heard i the Halls of Congress.
In the afternoon other activists joined us on the house side to educate the staffers on the detriment of another war!It was a long day with some great moments and then there were some hostile staffers with a narrow view of comprehension...all & all it was a learning experience that will enable our citizen lobbyists to improve the needed skills to continue to the PEACE work!!
