Code Pink announced a new campaign to prevent an attack on Iran, a campaign encouraged by our sisters in Iran and Israel. Since then over 11,000 people have contacted three powerful women—Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice—imploring them to stop an attack on Iran. Will you join the rising chorus for peace?

Nine years ago CODEPINK sisters stood in front of the White House in an act of civil disobedience to try to stop our government from bombing Iraq. None of us could live with ourselves if we sat by and did nothing while a country filled with children was blown to bits using money we needed in the United States to build hospitals, housing and schools. Our government refused to listen, and now we see the tragic costs of that war and the continued war in Afghanistan. Have we learned nothing?

Please join me, Gloria Steinem, and Eve Ensler in calling for peace with Iran. Sign this petition today. Share it with your friends. Tweet it. Post it to your facebook. And consider making a donation to help this message get out farther.
