Calling for a #PresidentForPeace
For the sake of humanity, respect, and dignity of all people — for the future’s sake — we are standing up and calling for a #PresidentForPeace. Whether it’s on the debate stage or on the campaign trail, the candidates must prove that they are serious about creating and enforcing foreign and domestic policies that are offer real solutions rooted in diplomacy, rather than being based on war and policing.
The candidates need to know we’re monitoring what’s being said (and not said), we are educating and mobilizing our communities, and bringing more allies along with us.
As a conscious guide for candidates to address a country that is warweary and struggling for racial justice, CODEPINK created a 10 Point Peace Platform. This social media birddogging guide was created with these 10 points in mind.
Join the conversation on social media using #PresidentForPeace.
