People’s Climate March CODEPINK Social Media/Outreach Toolkit

Multiple crises are threatening the people of our communities, our country, and our world, and menacing our very planet. Military and climate wars are destroying lives and the environment, and creating enormous flows of desperate refugees.

In this toolkit you’ll find everything you need to spread the word about the People’s Climate Movement for Peace.

REQUEST #4:

Sign on to the #No54BillionForWar Campaign!

Our environmental and human needs are desperate and urgent. We need to transform our economy, our politics, our policies, and our priorities to reflect that reality. That means reversing the flow of our tax dollars, away from war and militarism, and towards funding human and environmental needs, and demanding support for that reversal from all our political leaders at the local, state and national levels.


Sample Email (Note: We suggest including photos in your emails!)

[Subject: Rise for Peace at the People’s Climate March]

Hi [name],

The war economy, its violence and extractive practices, destroy communities and the planet. Wars and global warming contribute to the enormous flows of desperate refugees, now over 65 million and growing.

During the People’s Climate March, those of us working to end wars and create peace will be rising together. We are the guardians of the future. Without ending war none of us will have a planet that is safe and healthy to raise the younger generations.  Please join us in DC or at one of the People’s Climate March peace contingents in Oakland and Los Angeles! Or let us know if you want to lead a peace contingent in your local march!

For People’s Climate Day, help us stop war, save the planet, and build a more peaceful world.

Please share the image on the top of the this email on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtags #No54BillionForWar #PeoplesClimateMarch #WarIsNotGreen #SaveThePlanetStopWar

Share this information far and wide to your networks, and reach out to CODEPINK if you have any questions!

Toward a peaceful, healthy planet!
