October 2022 Week of Action for Peace in Korea!

Banner for October 2022 Week of Action for Peace in Korea!

 

Join Women Cross DMZ, VFP's Korea Peace Campaign and other allied orgs in a last collective push for H.R. 3446 in this year's Congress! The Korea Peace Now! Grassroots Network is hosting an online call to action week before the important midterm elections.

From October 11th to 14th, 2022, we will be contacting members of Congress and urging them to support legislation for peace in Korea.

How it will work:
There will be two daily Zoom calls (afternoon and evening sessions) on each day of the week. At each session, we will hold an optional mini-training session on how to call and email your member of Congress. We will also provide a script for the phone call and a template for the email. Everyone will place themselves on mute while they contact their member of Congress to ask them to support legislation for Korea peace.

Register Here (Registration deadline Oct. 7).
