     Purpose of
     Endorsement

Over 250 elected officials and national and local organizations have signed on to Peace Action's Campaign for a New Foreign Policy - and the list keeps growing! These organizations represent millions of Americans. Scroll down to view an alphabetical list of endorsers. As our list of endorsers grows, the message becomes clear: Our movement is a mainstream movement reflecting values and concerns shared by a wide variety of Americans. Also, local and state elected officials are colleagues to our Members of Congress. It is important that we connect issues such as the safety of our cities, excessive military spending, and the treatment of our troops to local issues such as the funding available to our community and the concerns of our families. Endorsing organizations and officials are meaningful to our Members of Congress because of the constituents they represent, and because many elected officials work closely with the types of organizations on our list.

Soon we hope to build a similar movement specifically representing Michigan citizens. Please contact us if you are a member of a group (such as a civil rights group, union, faith-based organization, or political group) and would like to add your name to our growing movement. You can either mail in a copy of our pledge, signed a leading member of your organization, or you can request that one of our volunteers attend your next meeting to present our campaign to your organization. Endorsing organizations also work with us on projects such as voter registration, congressional visits, and press conferences.
