Marcy Winograd volunteers as the Coordinator of CODEPINK CONGRESS and a co-producer of CODEPINK Radio. A long-time anti-war activist, Marcy also volunteers as Co-Chair of the Peace in Ukraine Coalition, advocating for a ceasefire and diplomatic resolution to the Russia-Ukraine war.
In 2010, Marcy mobilized 41% of the vote in her primary congressional peace challenge to then incumbent Jane Harman. In 2020, Marcy served as a CA DNC delegate to Bernie Sanders, mobilizing 500 other DNC delegates to challenge the influence of neo-conservatives on foreign policy. During her work on the Bernie campaign, Marcy organized polling locations on almost every college campus in Los Angeles County and Orange County.
Marcy also co-founded the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party to demand the funding of human needs, not endless war. Marcy's activism began in high school when she marched against the Vietnam War and later joined the defense team of beloved Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.
A retired English and government teacher, Marcy blogs about militarism and foreign policy at Common Dreams, CounterPunch, Salon, LAProgressive and Responsible Statecraft. Together with CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin, Marcy has co-authored "NATO is a warfare alliance, not a global force for peace" and "Meet the Senate nuke caucus: busting the budget and making the world less safe."
On joining with CODEPINK, Marcy says, "I am honored to work with such creative and committed activists and look forward to mobilizing co-sponsors and congressional votes for peace legislation."
