March 8th is International Women's Day and an opportunity to highlight the ongoing human rights struggles of women around the world, as well as the amazing work women activists are doing to build more just and peaceful societies.
We hope you'll join CODEPINK and Global Room for Women for the upcoming teleconference series, "With Love from the Middle East: Meet the Women Building Peace." Discover for yourself what is unfolding in the Middle East by listening to four engaging women from Gaza, Pakistan, Egypt, and Iraq speak about their challenges and victories.
We must do our part here at home to support these women's efforts for peace and justice. Please join us in petitioning our Representatives in Congress to vote NO on any further war funding appropriations for Iraq and Afghanistan, whether they are voting in the FY2011 budget or in "supplemental" bills.
