Tomorrow 8-8: Indigenous Peoples Nuclear Free Future 3pm-dusk, Bflo Hist Museum

Dear Friends, 50th year 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 8/7/17

We had a very exciting week with our 1-2-3 Resist Militarism! Triad! There wasn’t a dry eye in the house at the Lonely Soldier Monologues; Lisa Ling and Paul K. Chappell were wonderfully inspired and inspiring speakers, and National Bird deserves another viewing!!

Join us tomorrow at Indigenous Peoples Nuclear Free Future Day! Again – an inspired and inspiring event, and a wonderful opportunity to support both. Come from 3pm to dusk or any portion thereof, at the Buffalo History Museum (just north of the 198 at Elmwood Ave).

Also, it’s important to continue to STOP The Attempts to repeal and/or de-fund the Affordable Care Act (ACA, aka Obamacare)! See Weds 7-9pm Canvassing Training below.

FYI, the National Fuel Eminent Domain Case is being decided by the Judge. It was not an immediate ruling in favor of the Corporation as the other two case were, so -> there’s hope!!

And Sept 16 will be our 4th Annual Peace-Justice-Nonviolence Festival & Walk! We’ll start at 11am with tabling and Special Children & Youth Workshop with the Anne Frank Project; continue with an interfaith intercultural program and C&Y play at 1pm; Walk at 1:45pm.

Dear Friends, 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 7/24/17

Fight the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA)! (AKA, Obamacare)
These next few days may be the most important of this fight and we have to keep up the pressure. Congress is working to take away health coverage from 22 million Americans by repealing Obamacare. It will hurt everyone by stealing insurance, but women, transgender people, and marginalized communities will be hit the hardest. Republicans will soon vote on dropping coverage for mothers, people with disabilities, working families, and anyone who is vulnerable.
Saturday, July 29, is Healthcare National Day of Action and all across the country, hundreds of thousands of people will tell Senators NO to this attack on women, our families and our communities.
Please call 1.844.311.1880 and urge our senators to vote ‘no’ on any attempt to repeal or weaken the Affordable Care Act. You can let our Congress people know as well. All at 202-224-3121, or see wnypeace.org/GovtContactInfo.

Lots going on, especially about Racial Justice on Tuesday – and Resist Militarism virtually daily from July 29! – exciting events with nationally known guests and special opportunities! See you there!! Please also go to the calendar page as well as our Facebook page for information. We shall overcome!!
