Join us from 11:30am-1pm to speak out against an unnecessary war with Russia which could possibly lead to the use of nuclear weapons. We'll have banners, posters, an information table and flyers asking people to take action!
Then, join us from 2-3pm for a press conference at Nancy Pelosi's house. Our message to Pelosi: "Please explain why you are fast-tracking H.R. 6470 to ship $500 million in weapons to #Ukraine risking a dangerous military confrontation with Russia. Your constituents deserve to know."
Sponsored by CODEPINK. Endorsers include Veterans For Peace San Francisco chapter #69; San Francisco Bay Physicians for Social Responsibility; Green Party of Alameda County; the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Social Justice Committee, others.

Other urgent actions:
Call Pelosi's Office: (202) 225-4965. Sample message: Do not bring H.R. 6470 to the floor. We must halt, not increase, arms shipments to Ukraine. Instead spend the $500 million on the pandemic, poverty, housing, eliminating student debt. We don't want war with Russia.
Call and email the White House; urge diplomacy, not troops and weapons
White House Comment Line: (202) 456-1111
- Email the White House: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/. Sample message: President Biden, we cannot risk a military confrontation between the United States and Russia, the world's most heavily armed nuclear nations. Do not send more troops to Eastern Europe to provoke Russia into a regional or world war that would spell disaster. Instead, call for a moratorium on NATO expansion, pull back our troops and missiles on Russia's borders and seek a negotiated solution to the current crisis.
Call your Congress member: (202) 224-3121. Sample message: As your constituent I urge you to write or sign on to a Member of Congress letter to President Biden, or join Reps. Barbara Lee and Pramila Jayapal to urge the President not to send more troops and weapons to Eastern Europe to risk war with Russia. Additionally, I ask you to NOT sign on to Congressman Meek's dangerous legislation H.R. 6470 to fund $500 million more in weapons for Ukraine. Introduce legislation supporting a moratorium on NATO expansion.
The time to speak out is now! The Russian people don't want war; the Ukrainian people don't want war. And we don't want our soldiers to die in an unnecessary war with Russia! "We demand true discussion, dialogue, diplomacy on steroids instead of war-mongering to save the lives of the innocent civilians that are at stake around the world." Col. (Ret.) Ann Wright
