Our work is more important now that ever before!! Crisis=Opportunity; and as Rev. King said, unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. So, we shall overcome!!
The annual dinner was a rousing success! Many thanks to Aly Wane, our honorees, and all who attended and or supported it.
Don’t forget to support the #Buffalo25, suffering from ICE raid breaking up families. Donations can be sent to First Presbyterian Church, One Symphony Circle, Buffalo, New York 14201, with #Buffalo25 in the memo line. Their situation is very serious, financially and otherwise.

WNY Peace Center: Weekly Update September 5, 2016:
It’s Labor Day! You should have the day off, with pay!
Don’t miss this important action:
Wed Sept 7th: National Call In Day to support the upcoming Murphy/Paul joint resolution to block $1.15 billion in weapons for Saudi Arabia! See below.
And get ready for the Peace Justice and Nonviolence Festival and Walk on September 11!
Protest to Stop U.S. Weapon Sales to Saudi Arabia!
Wednesday, Sept 7th: National Call In Day to support the upcoming Murphy/Paul joint resolution to block $1.15 billion in weapons for Saudi Arabia!
Saudi Arabia is ruled by a ruthless feudal monarchy that will turn those weapons against its neighbors (as in Bahrain), use them in its illegal war in Yemen, and will no doubt turn them on its own people if they challenge the absolute dictatorship of the Saudi ruling family. By providing these weapons, the U.S. enables Saudi war crimes and human rights abuses.
All are welcome to use Friends Committee on National Legislation’s (FCNL) toll free number.
Tell Senate: “No more arms sales to Saudi Arabia!”
Call FCNL toll free number:
1-855-68 NO WAR
Using this number will allow us to track the number of calls coming in to the Senate, broken day by state, and to report those numbers to Hill staff.
Calling this number will direct folks to the Capitol Switchboard, where they can ask the operator to direct them to each of their senators’ offices.
