We have a unique opportunity to make peace issues highly visible as hundreds of thousands of people gather in Washington, DC under the umbrella of One Nation Working Together. Our plan is outlined below.
Your help is needed to make this plan come to life. Sign up today to be part of the hundreds of people who will carry posters, distribute leaflets and make the presence of the peace community a strong reality on October 2nd.
Join us as we distribute posters, stickers and leaflets with these messages:
The heart of our plan is a massive poster presence at the Lincoln Memorial. We need at least 200 people to meet us at 9 am near the Lincoln Memorial to pick up posters and get assigned to specific highly visible locations around the area. Our plan also includes teams of people distributing posters at the Metro stops closest to the Lincoln Memorial. We want to catch people as they are getting off the Metro and heading to the rally site. In addition, if we have enough volunteers, we will have people distributing posters at the bus parking locations, before people get onto the Metro trains.
In addition to our posters, we are preparing a leaflet that explains the connections between the issues of the 10.2.10 mobilization and the struggle for peace. We’ll also have a sticker to give to people with the slogan Jobs Not War. The teams that are organized for the poster distribution will have some of these materials, but we also need volunteers who will just focus on getting out the leaflet and the sticker.
As the poster, leaflet and sticker distribution plan is being put into place, other people from the peace movement will be gathering at 10:30 am at 14th Street and Constitution for a Peace Feeder March to the Lincoln Memorial. We’ll have a lead banner for this march that says:
Money for Jobs, Not for Wars! Bring the Troops Home Now!
We’ll also have our posters, leaflets and stickers so we’ll need some help at this site as well.
