From March 17-20, people from around the country converged on Washington, DC to lobby for a responsible end to the U.S. war in Afghanistan and cuts in the Pentagon budget.
Among the highlights of the event: hearing from Afghanistan whistleblower Lieutenant Colonel Daniel L. Davis and Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH), learning how to lobby, and meeting with congressional offices.
Here are some pictures of the activities. See more photos on our Facebook page or photo stream.
