Voting and Elections

Make Peace an Election Issue

The debates leading up to an election provides you an opportunity to talk with members of Congress and candidates about issues of peace, justice, and the environment. Political candidates—whether incumbent or new—"listen louder" during campaigns than at any other times in their careers. By changing the debate in the elections, you'll help change the debate in Congress.
