Peace Collective Gathering
Apr 21 @ 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

The peace collective is anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist. We are for a world free from neoliberal greed and violence. We support and affirm the right to self-determination for all peoples, especially those in the Global South, as they resist the colonial domination of the U.S. empire. We advocate for international cooperation, not a unipolar world order. The Peace Collective is made up of people under the age of 30 who come together for anti-imperialist education in the form of book clubs and discussions. Collective members have opportunities to start or get connected to divestment campaigns in their area to gain anti-war organizing experience, as well as other CODEPINK campaigns around the country and world. Sign-up for the Peace Collective here!

At this gathering we will be discussing how we can turn our new manifesto into a Zine!  Please RSVP for the Zoom link!

Beyond the War: Yemeni Food
Apr 24 @ 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Join CODEPINK and Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation for a conversation with Lana Luqman. The “Beyond the War” Yemen cultural series will attempt to showcase Yemen outside the realm of tragedy with an emphasis on Yemeni history, celebrations, and excellence! We will be reading questions from the audience to Lana throughout the webinar. CODEPINK’s Danaka Katovich and Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation’s Arwa Mokdad will be hosting this webinar.

Lana Luqman is a Yemeni-British citizen of the world. She grew up in Yemen, Somalia, and France. After earning her degree in International Business Administration, she returned to Yemen and worked with international aid organizations. Currently, she lives in Brighton, UK.

Despite living outside of Yemen, her mother continued to cook Yemeni food at home and Lana was able to travel and taste food from all over the world. When she left Yemen six years ago, she discovered her passion for Yemeni food. She believes that we all have a passion hidden within us and close to our hearts that only grows when shared with others. Through this talk, she hopes everyone will fall in love with Yemen and its diverse cuisine.

Not long ago, traveling and trying food from different countries was a privilege, but now thanks to the internet and social media more people can explore the world with a click of a button 😊 So, click the button below and register to travel to Yemen! Please RSVP for the Zoom info!

GREEN ECONOMY

PinkBridgeDivider

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!
