By September 17, Congress has to vote on the Iran nuclear deal and we are working hard to ensure that they vote in favor of this historic agreement. We've organized a Picnic For Peace with Iran event to bring together different sectors of the community who care about peace and to have an action that is fun and visible to the press.
- We’ve teamed up with the National American Iranian Council (NIAC), Busboys and Poets, and Jewish Voice for Peace DC Metro Chapter to host a dinner in traditional Iranian style, with round white table clothes on the ground with space for ten people at each “table.” We’ll have flowers and candles on the tablecloths. Note: Please bring your own cushion!
- We encourage people to dress nicely and in all white for peace (with a touch of pink!), to make the event aesthetically pleasing.
- Our goal is to have 200 people. We’re asking groups and individuals (interfaith groups, progressive businesses, NGOs, activist groups, people with lots of friends!) to host a table and get 10 people for their table.
- Each table is responsible for coordinating and bringing their own food. We plan to make drinks (pomegranate/lemonade juice) for all, and perhaps a dessert, but the rest of the food is for each table to figure out.
