Let's get some boots on the ground for peace and truth!

I just got this in my email, and it struck a chord in me, because I'm currently working for a political campaign and while going door to door is a well-respected strategy for promoting political candidates, I never thought about it as a way to spread a message like peace (or 9-11 truth, for that matter):

Million Doors for Peace
Saturday September 20th 11:00am
Orientation and Lunch
Global Exchange - CODEPINK
2017 Mission Street, 2nd floor
San Francisco, CA 94110

On Saturday, September 20, with your help, 25,000 peace activists will talk with 1 million voters about what’s at stake in Iraq and how they can join the movement to end the war!

CODEPINK is partnering with United for Peace & Justice, True Majority, Win Without War and other organizations for a massive door knocking for peace. We'll bring our CODEPINK flair of costumes and singing.

Volunteer doorknockers will ask people to sign an antiwar petition directed to Congress. Our 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.
