WELCOME TO DELAWARE RIVER AREA CODEPINK FOR PEACE
Peace and Green Working Together
WE NEED YOU to help us END wars and to build a new GREEN economy
We collaborate with various peace and justice groups in the Delaware River Region (NJ, PA, DE), to provide a creative and "PINK peaceful presence" at events and actions.
We also help to organize visits to our representative's on Capitol Hill and at their local offices in the region.
Our mailing list compiles action and event calendars from various groups in the region to help you navigate what is going on and how you can help out. This site is for the busy, but motivated activist, ready to jump in and make a difference where it matters most.
WE say PEACE IS GREEN, the NEW Industrial Revolution!
Our New Year’s REVOLUTION is to promote the idea that PEACE IS GREEN!
Without addressing the reasons we go to war, it is near to impossible to stop it—Following the ideas in Van Jones’s book, “The Green Collar Economy” and the wisdom from David Dornfeld on green manufacturing, we hope to engage with activists and political leaders to bring this movement forward. Becoming a country that can meet its own energy needs, manufacturing green technology and incorporating sustainable practices throughout our infrastructure will aid the planet, encourage growth and alleviate the stressors that cause war.
Okay, Okay, What do I have to do, remember I am BUSY...
- Just show up, wear pink and hold a sign! We can provide pink accessories for you. If you're shy, you won't even have to talk if you don't want to, but we bet you will--
- Have to learn more, confused about the issues? Our Facebook group page will alert you to various forums, teach-ins in our region and our "links" section directs you to informative websites.
- Need to work from home as an "arm-chair" activist? E-mails and faxes to your representatives, as well as letters to the editor are vitally important FACEBOOK page will have links to these and more.
- Even the most "overscheduled" person knows, deep down in our hearts, that we can spare a few minutes a week, make a phone call or write an email, every little bit helps to stop this bloodshed and insanity. The first step to getting involved is staying informed. Join our Del River CodePINK Peace is Green group page on FACEBOOK to stay informed.
