Tuesday J5 Capitol Calling Party: Get Ready for Biden's Cabinet Picks

Peacemakers: Get Ready for Biden’s Cabinet Picks

Please join CODEPINK for a look at Biden’s cabinet nominees with special guest Norman Solomon, author of War Made Easy!

Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, Marcy Winograd, coordinator of CODEPINKCONGRESS, and Hanieh Jodat Barnes, president of Muslim Delegates and Allies, will host the evening with their friend and longtime anti-war activist Norman Solomon.

Norman will discuss the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY as we review Biden’s cabinet nominees on foreign and domestic policies, with the latest pick being Kathleen Hicks for Deputy Secretary of Defense. Hicks is the Henry Kissinger Chair (oh no!) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

What can we expect from these nominees?

What legislative campaigns should we be ready to embrace?

What executive orders should we demand Biden issue in the first 100 days?

Following Norman’s talk and Q and A, our Capitol Hill Calling team will discuss action alerts to share with allies to challenge Biden nominee Avril Haines for National Intelligence.

Norman Solomon went to his first antiwar demonstration in 1967 and has been active in peace and social justice movements since then. His books include The Habits of Highly Deceptive Media, War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death, and Made Love, Got War: Close Encounters with America's Warfare State.

Norman founded the 22-year-old Institute for Public Accuracy, where he's executive director, and in 2011 co-founded, where he's national director. As a syndicated columnist, he wrote the weekly "Media Beat" for 17 years, challenging patterns of mainstream media bias. Norman was a Bernie Sanders delegate to the 2016 and 2020 Democratic National Conventions, where he was a coordinator of the independent Bernie Delegates Network.

Can we count you in?
