Honor the Moms Who Lost Sons and Daughters in Iraq

Send a flower to be tied to the White House fence during the Mothers Day vigil.
Send a message to Laura Bush and ask her to tell George not to attack Iran.
Send yourself to Washington -- and help the organizers put on a great event.

Not-So-Happy Mother's Day

This Mother's Day, President Bush and his wife Laura will take joy in their daughters. They'll also take an untenable stand to continue an unjust occupation of Iraq that has caused thousands of mothers to have their joy replaced by unspeakable grief. Mothers who have lost sons and daughters in Iraq will mark Mother's Day as one more painful reminder of an irreparable loss.

But they will not be alone.

On May 14, mothers of fallen and wounded soldiers, including Cindy Sheehan and women from Iraq and Iran, will gather in front of the White House for a 24-hour-vigil to honor the dead and demand an end to the occupation. Here are three things you can do to help.

Featured Action

Send a Flower

Send a Mother's Day rose to Washington, D.C., and let the mothers of the fallen and wounded soldiers know that you stand with them and against the war. Organic roses will be presented to the mothers and tied to the fence outside the White House as a memorial to the dead and a call for peace. Click here to send a rose.

Featured Action

Send a Message

President Bush didn't listen to those advisers who told him there were no WMDs, or that we'd need hundreds of thousands of troops to prevent civil war in Iraq. Maybe he'll listen to his wife? Let's all ask Laura to tell George -- invading Iran would be a huge mistake and only lead to thousands more grief-stricken moms next year on Mothers Day. Click here to send a message to Laura Bush.

Volunteer Opportunity

Send Yourself

Volunteer with CODEPINK in Washington, D.C. for Mother’s Day weekend. Join a 24-hour vigil in front of the White House calling for an end to the insanity of sending our children to war. For more information, click here.

Please forward this email to all your friends!!!

Thank you for working to build a better world.
