BFP Endorses Nov 10th Action
On Behalf of $15 Minimum Wage In NYC!
“Peace Abroad and Justice At Home
Are Tightly Connected.”

Oct 28, 2015

A national day of action to “Fight For $15″ is scheduled for
Tuesday, November 10th.

Here in NYC there will be events in support of the struggle of fast food and health care workers to win a sustainable minimum wage.

Brooklyn For Peace has endorsed the local actions which are being sponsored by a broad coalition of community, clergy and labor groups. Realizing that a rising tide lifts all boats and that economic deprivation at home is tightly bound to the lopsized spending priorities of Congress, where tax dollars in the trillions are spent for war but ugently needed programs are slashed for “lack of funds,” Brooklyn For Peace believes that there can be no justice at home without peace abroad and an end to militarism and war as national policy. Likewise, without justice at home there can be no peace.

RISE AND SHINE and show your support. Join us early Tuesday morning on November 10th at 5:30 am to lend support to Brooklyn’s fast food workers. The event in Brooklyn will be launched at Cadman Plaza & Tillary Street.  [MAP LINK]  Be there!

NOTE: The BFP contingent of members and friends will meet at 5:30am at the flagpole in the park on the south side of Tillary Street, across from Cadman Plaza Park.

Also, later in the day, a Citywide Rally And March — 4:00 pm at Foley Square.  Write to pej@brooklynpeace.org for details.

Thank You Brooklyn Reps!
For Supporting Peace & Diplomacy With Iran!

Sep 1, 2015

Brooklyn is in the house! And peace is winning the day. Four of six of our Brooklyn House members have declared their support for the Iran deal, supporting peace and diplomacy with Iran and not another war!

Big thanks go to Yvette Clarke, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerrold Nadler and Nydia Velazquez who listened to their constituents and then stood up and spoke out.

Please call Clarke, Jeffries, Nadler and Velazquez and tell them  “thank you”   for doing the right thing.
Let them know you’ll have their back when opponents of the deal attack them for taking a position in favor of peace.

Can You Spare An Hour

Just A Few Weeks To Stop A War…Join Us!

Aug 20, 2015

If you agree that this is a critical moment where peace hangs in the balance, then please come out to the events listed below. The purpose is to support diplomacy and peace with Iran and counter the poisonous and heavily-financed campaign of opponents to the Iran nuclear agreement. If this agreement is overturned by Congress, peace will be endangered and a new disastrous Middle East war will be very much closer.

Your Calls Really Count!
Call Congress Now!
Support Diplomacy NOT another war!

August 15, 2015:
Senator Schumer has come out OPPOSING the Iran agreement.  This is outrageous!
Senator Gillibrand has come out in SUPPORT.  We need to THANK Sen, Gillibrand, who is being pressured to change her position.
Close to $40 million is being spent by the opposition to overturn this historic agreement, setting us down a path which could too easily lead to war.

Additionally, thus far NONE of our Brooklyn representatives has taken a public stand.
Our calls are important. The vote of each representative who supports the agreement will be crucial!

Brooklyn To Congress:
“Support Peace & Diplomacy!
We Don’t Want Another War!”

Aug 1, 2015

Continuing their campaign to build support among their Brooklyn neighbors, BFP volunteers were out in front of the Central Library today. Flyers were handed out and postcards to Congress demanding support for the agreement on Iran’s  nuclear programs were collected. So far, Brooklyn For Peace has collected over 1,700 postcards from Brooklyn residents reflecting the widespread support for diplomacy and against a third Middle East war.

At times, there were so many people wanting to sign postcards that they had to wait on line. It was a sweltering day so that was a good measure of people’s commitment. Impressive! Congress … are you listening?

Our campaign will continue in the weeks ahead. Want to join us? Write to pej@brooklynpeace.org and we’ll send you details of our next mobilization.
