Tuesday, April 5 Capitol Calling Party: Ukraine: Prospects for Peace and Preventing Escalation


On Tuesday, April 5, join CODEPINK Congress & Massachusetts Peace Action for our twice-monthly Capitol Calling Party.

As Russia’s assault on Ukraine takes a huge civilian toll, peace activists in the United States are calling on the Biden administration to articulate compromises the U.S. and NATO will support to end this crisis.

Our guests will discuss options for peace that include neutrality for Ukraine, humanitarian aid for refugees, an international security agreement, status of the secessionist regions in the Donbas, Russian reparations for Ukraine and an off-ramp for lifting sanctions on Russia. How do we reach a peace settlement before further escalation? The stakes are high for all of us.

*Note: By RSVPing to this event, you are signing up to join the CODEPINK AND either Massachusetts Peace Action or your local Peace Action affiliate's email list
