National Peace Action Webinar with Ed Markey!
Wed August 5, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Despite all the unpredictability this year has presented us with, one thing remains certain: this election will be most important in our lifetime. Please join Peace Action in the launching of our virtual “Meet the Candidates” series to hear from, engage with, and ask questions of the pro-peace champions we are supporting this cycle.
Wednesday, Aug 5 at 7:30 pm Eastern, Peace Action is honored to kick off our new series of Zoom webinars with Senator Edward J. Markey (D-MA). Register now to join him in conversation.
Senator Markey has provided steadfast leadership on issues of peace and justice, and has been one of our strongest allies in Congress. Wednesday, Aug 5 at 7:30 pm Eastern, you will get a chance to hear from him and pose your questions as he joins us live.
A long-time advocate for nuclear arms control and nonproliferation, Senator Markey has stepped up to introduce countless pieces of legislation over the years to change the dangerous nuclear policies of the U.S. and cut funding from an unnecessary new arms race — including his Smarter Approaches to Nuclear Expenditures (SANE) Act, which seeks to make substantial cuts to the bloated nuclear weapons upgrade program set to cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion. We’re also rather fond of it as it’s named after our founding organization Committee for a SANE Nuclear Policy. You can donate to his campaign here.
Please Register to Join Us on Zoom and pose questions to the Senator
Note: If registration fills up, you can still join us via Facebook livestream.
