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

Tue October 3, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 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 call for: Ceasefire, Diplomacy, and No More Weapons.

The launch will feature an evening talk including Dr. Cornel West, Co-Executive Director of the People’s Forum Claudia De La Cruz CODEPINK, Co-founder Medea Benjamin, journalist Eugene Puryear, and comedian/podcaster Lee Camp, followed the next morning by 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.

Co-sponsored by Peace in Ukraine Coalition, CODEPINK, Bus Boys and Poets, ANSWER, WILPF- US, Massachusetts Peace Action, World BEYOND War, UNAC, Veterans for Peace National, DC Statehood Green Party, RootsAction, DSA International Committee, Pax Christi USA, Women Against Military Madness, “End the Wars” Issue Team, Progressive Democrats of America, North Alabama Peace Network, Veterans For Peace Linus Pauling Chapter 132, Our Revolution Hawaii, Portland Peaceful Response Coalition,Veterans For Peace: Spokane Chapter #35, Long Island Alliance for Peaceful Alternatives, Phoenix Antiwar Coalition, New England Peace Pagoda, Family Mediation Center, Inc., Wisconsin Interfaith Peace Working Group, Mt Diablo, Peace and Justice Center, East Bay DSA International Solidarity Committee, Diáspora Pa’lante Collective, WILPF- Greater Philly Branch, Students Against Imperialism, Pax Christi New York…
