Million Doors for Peace, September 20

On Saturday, September 20, join thousands of volunteers across the U.S. in knocking on a Million Doors for Peace. This national canvas is organized by United for Peace and Justice, US Action/True Majority, Win Without War, and other organizations, and it is hoped it will be the biggest peace action of 2008.

As a volunteer, you'll ask people to sign an antiwar petition directed to Congress. The message: End this immoral war, bring our troops home, and invest in America's future. In addition, we will encourage people to join local anti-war groups, engage in voter education work, and become a part of the organized antiwar movement in their area.

In order to reach a million people in a single day, we must organize at least 25,000 volunteers in all 50 states. Peace groups have never implemented such an elaborate communication and organizing plan before now, but with new and traditional communications tools available, we anticipate success with this groundbreaking, grassroots project. This project will not end on September 20, but it will be a new beginning of a more organized grassroots movement for peace and justice.

Training materials, petitions, local groups to canvass with in your area, and handouts will be provided. To find out more, or join the effort, click here.
