You’ve probably heard by now that on Thursday Dec 13 the Senate voted to pass S.J. Res. 54. See statement by Peace Action. Thanks to everybody who made calls to Congress. Please call again now to thank Sen. Gillibrand (who was an early co-sponsor) and also to thank Sen. Schumer, who voted in favor. Cong. Switchboard: 292-224-3121 or use their local numbers: Gillibrand: 212-688-6262 or Schumer 212-224-6542.

Saturdays 11:00 am to 12:30 pm: Join this ongoing weekly vigil at Union Square, SE corner of the park (opposite the atomic clock). Organized by the Catholic Worker Movemen
