The Pink Party welcomes everyone interested in promoting global peace and understanding.

Be Pink, Be Peace, Be Planet!
Pass it on.

The Definition of Pink

Positive, physical tranquillity, nurture, warmth, femininity, love, sexuality, survival of the species.

Being a tint of red, pink also affects us physically, but it soothes, rather than stimulates. (Interestingly, red is the only colour that has an entirely separate name for its tints. Tints of blue, green, yellow, etc. are simply called light blue, light green?etc.) Pink is a powerful colour, psychologically. It represents the feminine principle, and survival of the species; it is nurturing and physically soothing.
From "Colour Affects"

n. [Perh. akin to pick; as if the edges of the petals were picked out. Cf. Pink, v. t.] 1. (Bot.) A name given to several plants of the caryophyllaceous genus Dianthus , and to their flowers, which are sometimes very fragrant and often double in cultivated varieties. The species are mostly perennial herbs, with opposite linear leaves, and handsome five-petaled flowers with a tubular calyx.

2. A color resulting from the combination of a pure vivid red with more or less white; -- so called from the common color of the flower. --Dryden.

3. Anything supremely excellent; the embodiment or perfection of something. ``The very pink of courtesy.'' --Shak.

From "Webster's Dictionary"

1. The highest or best degree: in the pink of health.

2. Slang. Having moderately leftist political opinions.
From "Webster's Dictionary"

1. Light-colored trousers formerly worn as part of the winter semidress uniform by U.S. Army officers.
From "Webster's Dictionary"

The Pink Party
The Pink Party welcomes everyone interested in promoting global peace and understanding. It promotes creative solutions towards global peace and humanitarianism. It bleeds over hard lines and welcomes all. It's not an anti-war movement but a PRO-Peace, PRO-Planet awareness and advocacy philosophy. The Pink Party promotes global peace and understanding yet believes in protecting and honoring freedom and those who fight for it. We are proud to be Americans and proud to be free. We believe in world peace and global freedom and will strive for awareness. We are global citizens and we are a world party.
From "The Pink Party"

- Bleed Pink - talk about it, reach out. Information and creative solutions.

- Wear Pink - a visual reminder of peace and good will. Pink hair, Pink clothes, Pink sunglasses, Pink lightbulbs, Pink ribbons, etc.

- "War is Not Healthy for Children and Other Living Things," artist Lorraine Schneider, 1969 to re-create her original pro-peace artwork in hues of Pink? (Still need to speak with her)

The Visual:
- To see the colour Pink wherever you go. A colourful indicator that encourages communication with respect to global issues. Pink encourages creative inquiry and resolve. To see photos in the newspaper and magazines that are splattered with pink. To see people with their hair dyed pink, their pets dyed pink, wearing pink ties, grooming pink flowers, trimming pink trees, drinking pink... you get the picture.

What we encourage:
- Protecting and honoring freedom
- Global peace and equality for humanity
- Open communication towards global solutions
- Championing children and other little creatures
- Non-violence and non-violent practices
- Humans and animal rights
- Affordable housing, food, and medical for all people
- Communities that reach, unite, and flourish
- Non denominational participation, all pathways lead to God and everyone is a child of God
- Organic and free range farming
- Independent entrepreneurs, local shops, and businesses
- Hemp crop production
- A chemical and toxic free environment
- Knowledge is power and education is key
- Want less, be more
- Alternative energy sources and public transportation
- Live close to where you work
- Carpool when possible
- Take the best and leave rest
- Being aware of history and the present
- Being a proud American
- Love and understanding

Be Pink, Be Peace, Be Planet!
