Los Angeles May 25th Intl Women's Day of Peace and Disarmament

Event Description

Co-hosted by CODEPINK Los Angeles, Jewish Voices for Peace - Los Angeles, and Veteran Voices for Peace

If you cannot join the peace caravan, you can still donate the items listed below. Drop off location is at the CODEPINK house, 2010 Linden Ave, Venice Beach.

May 24th is the International Women’s day for Peace and Disarmament a day they are using to raise up the cost of weapons and war to the planet.  It is the day before US Memorial Day – a day that has been used to almost celebrate war.   We choose to focus on peace and disarmament on Memorial Day weekend.  So there are no more dead from war who need to be remembered.

In Los Angeles we are meeting at the Santa Monica Airport Parking lot, SE corner of Airport and Centinela to decorate our cars and spell PEACE with our cars. After it is photographed by a drone, we will drive down Ocean Park to PCH up to Sunset and back to Ocean Ave down the beach to Washington.  A few cars will take all the collections and distribute them to Venice Community Housing Corp and LA Tenants Union.  Akasha’s is preparing 50 brown bags to add to our collection to deliver.

One group will drive to Venice Housing Community, another to LA Tenants Union in East Los Angeles.

Signage: Make your own signs if you can (or use window paint); we will have some extra signs if you need them. Some themes are: Peace, Global Ceasefire; No Sanctions, No War, HealthCare Not Warfare, War is Not Green, Divest from War  or make an image that speaks your heart.  Feel free to make peace flags and fully decorate your car.

COVID safety measures: We encourage you to stay in your cars; If you get out, make sure you keep a safe distance and wear masks.
