Dear supporter of peace,
As the Feb. 24 anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine approaches, we have an opportunity to amplify calls for genuine diplomacy to end this terrible war. With a focus on actions the same day around the U.S., we’re encouraging activists to organize and participate at locations that seem most appropriate locally.
Defuse Nuclear War, a coalition that RootsAction has been coordinating, recently conducted a survey and activists responded overwhelmingly in favor of this focus:
Diplomacy Is the Path to Peace
- Stop the Killing
- Avert Nuclear War
The day of action will focus on urging the United States to lead with diplomacy instead of escalation -- to help create a path for ending the war, with genuine diplomatic initiatives instead of continuing with a blank check for huge weapons shipments.

Feb. 24 is a Friday, in a week that the House and Senate are not in session -- so this is an extra good opportunity to bring public pressure on members of Congress while they are presumably in their home area. As constituents, you might want to:
- Picket at Congress member's local office
- Demonstrate in a public place with high visibility
- Flyer / collect petition signatures for local Congressperson in a busy area or park
- Schedule a meeting with your Representative at their home office
- Protest at TV/newspaper offices
We thank you for your continued support and activism. To learn more about the Feb. 24 event, please visit us at: https://defusenuclearwar.org/event/february-24-day-of-action/
