As you know midterm elections are only two months away. Already Peace Action and our PAC has made a difference by endorsing candidates, contributing to primary elections, briefing candidates and collecting candidate questionnaires.
Please give a contribution to Peace Action PAC now. Even $5 can make a difference. By law, $5,000 is the maximum you can give. You may consider a recurring gift so that our PAC is always prepared even for surprise special elections.
In the coming weeks, Peace Action will provide you the opportunity to give directly to our hand-picked peace candidates. Meanwhile, we need to raise funds for our PAC that will give us the flexibility to give directly to peace candidates or to hire organizers to work on specific races.
Peace Action PAC has helped elect such peace leaders as:
- Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) — A leader in bringing the troops home from Afghanistan and ending the Iraq War
• Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) — Another leader in stopping endless wars and cutting the Pentagon budget
• Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) — Co-chair of the Progressive Caucus
• Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) — A rare Republican ally on ending the wars and reducing Pentagon waste
In November, we expect a number of hot races in California, New Hampshire, Massachusettes, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and a few other states. Your support can make a difference.
It’s not just electing Members of Congress that will vote the right way. That certainly helps. But the key is electing leaders on peace issues who will lead a number of lawmakers to vote the right way. Leaders who will do the hard, behind the scenes, work on issues you and I care about that will make a lasting difference.
Please take a moment now to make a gift so that we can make a difference in key elections.
For a more peaceful Congress,
Paul Kawika Martin
Policy and PAC Director
