Sonoma Community Center, Serres Hall
276 E Napa St
Sonoma, CA 95476


Jodie will talk about how we can grow a local peace economy and explore the difference between an economy that supports peace and one that has war on default mode. As a highly effective activist, Jodie has worked with women for peace in the U.S. and abroad, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Cuba, and other countries around the world.

Jodie Evans has been an activist for peace, the environment, women’s rights, and social justice for over 40 years. She is the co-founder of CODEPINK, which works to stop US military interventions overseas and promote diplomatic solutions. She has co-authored two books, “Stop the Next War Now” and “Twilight of Empire,” and has produced several documentary films, including the Oscar and Emmy-nominated “The Square” and “This Changes Everything,” based on Naomi Klein’s book of the same name. She served in Governor Jerry Brown’ s first administrations and was his campaign manager in 1992 when he ran for president. She sits on the boards of several organizations, including Rainforest Action Network (RAN), Institute for Policy Studies, Global Girl Media, and 826LA.

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
