    Stop the Sanctions

    The United States is using deadly sanctions against almost a third of the world's population. These sanctions, which hurt the most vulnerable by raising food prices and limiting access to medications, are illegal under international law. The new Sanctions Kill campaign is organizing to educate and mobilize to stop the sanctions. The first set of actions is March 13 to 15. Learn more here.

    Solidarity with Palestine

    Palestinians in Gaza have been demonstrating for their right of return every Friday for almost two years. Israeli snipers have responded to the demonstrations by murdering over 200 people, including media, medics, and children, and wounding over 18,000. Palestinians are calling for a global week of solidarity actions March 24 to 30. Find information on how to participate here.

    Join the movement: We are marching. We are mobilizing. We are making history.

    New Date!  To avoid conflicts with MLK weekend, we have changed the date from January to March. This coincides with International Women's Day, where an equal world is an enabled world. 

    We will meet at the Capitol Mall with Amazing speakers, music, numerous booths from area organizations, and great local food and coffee trucks at the Capitol steps.  We will end with a 1 mile march and more music and availability of booths at the Mall. 

    Rain or shine. Let's do this!
