Today we vote.
Tomorrow we organize.
It’s election day in the U.S. and we love that a mass of CODEPINKers have already voted, and many more are marching to the ballot box today! We can’t endorse any of the Presidential candidates — by law, we’re actually not allowed to endorse any candidate — but we know that the outcome of the election will be better if we all go out and vote our conscience up and down the ballot.
We thought the 2016 election was bumpy, stressful, emotional, and unlike any other, and now here we are in 2020, in the middle of a pandemic with cities boarded up in preparation for post-election fallout.
No matter who wins or what happens, the time is not for despair but for hope and action. CODEPINK will be here to cultivate community, foster love, and build peace, in our streets, in Congress, and around the world. We are ever more determined to lead forward, knowing that yes we can build a more peaceful and just world at home and abroad. Find out where to vote here. Don't forget to check out our page of resources for taking care of yourself and your community during and after the election. We also invite you to join our Election Night Peacemakers Watch Party here.
It's more important than ever before that we continue our work — and we are not backing down. Whoever wins the election, we’ll continue organizing virtually, in person, and in the streets. We will continue calling for an end to the war in Yemen, to lift sanctions on Iran and Venezuela, to free Palestine, stop arming the Middle East, and stop funding the Pentagon and weapons manufacturers. We’ll be pushing for peace with China, advocating for imprisoned women rights activists in Saudi Arabia, and demanding that the U.S. be a Good Neighbor with Latin America.
CODEPINK was founded in a moment of deep crisis, and no matter what the future holds, we will continue to lead forward.
