Turn the President's State of the Union Address into local press
coverage of opposition to his policies.
Take action in your community to challenge the Bush administration's
policies of preemptive attacks and military hegemony. Be a part of
the coordinated statewide actions that will get widespread media
coverage. Join us as we call on our national leaders for a
fundamental change in foreign policy.
The press will be actively looking for the local response to the
President's speech in your community. An organized action outside
the office of your member of Congress is virtually guaranteed press
coverage and is an excellent opportunity not only to voice
opposition to Bush's policies, but also to articulate an alternative
that will promote genuine security.
Local Actions - There will be simultaneous actions at the district
offices of as many of California's members of Congress as possible.
These actions will applaud the local Representatives for opposing the
war resolution or critique the local Representative for his or her
support of the war resolution. We will urge all Representatives to
challenge the President's foreign policy and to promote a
fundamentally different policy.
California Peace Action will provide free materials, such as placards
and literature, as well as any media or logistical support that you
Put the pressure on Congress - The day following the President's
address will be a Statewide Call-in Day. Join thousands of
California Peace Action members and hundreds of organizations across
the state in sending Congress a simple message: we need a fundamental
change in foreign policy. We will provide call-in slips
