======== UFPJ ACTION ALERT: AUGUST: A TIME FOR ACTION ========================

 


Dear Peace and Justice Activist,
This August is shaping up into an extraordinary month for action! Last week  
UFPJ brought you information about Nuclear Free Future Month [1] with  
opportunities to phase out nuclear power and start negotiations on a treaty  
to abolish nuclear weapons. We owe it to the victims of the atomic bombings  
of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to the future environmental health of our  
planet to oppose nuclear weapons and power.Your donations to UFPJ [2]will  
allow us to continue delivering news and action opportunities like this,  
which are of vital importance to you and your organizations across the  
country.

Also this August, the 50th anniversary of the historic
March on Washington* [3] will give voice to demands to end the plague of war,  
the injustice of economic, racial and social inequality, and the destruction  
of our planet. In the wake of the tragic outcome in the Trayvon Martin case  
we must be connected with others standing up against racial and social  
injustice, poverty and economic inequality, environmental destruction and  
climate collapse in order to build our movement for peace and justice through  
broad-based collective action. And lets not forget attack on the voting  
rights act, moral Mondays in North Carolina and Dream Defenders as exciting  
examples of nonviolent resistance building to Aug 24, and pushing to fufill  
Dr King's dream.
We know you count on UFPJ to keep you informed and connected. Right now we  
are facing a significant increase in costs for our email and web  
communications.Please give as generously as you can so that UFPJ [4]can  
continue to send out action alerts, newsletters, and legislative updates.  
UFPJ communications promote and support the activities of our members groups.
Thank you for your work and your support!
The UFPJ Steering Committee
