What is CODEPINK?
CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities. CODEPINK rejects foreign policies based on domination and aggression, and instead calls for policies based on diplomacy, compassion and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.
CODEPINK is not exclusively women — we invite men to join us — but we are particularly eager to see mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters, female workers, students, teachers, healers, artists, writers, singers, poets and all outraged woman rise up and oppose the war in Iraq. Women have been the guardians of life — not because we are better or purer or more innately nurturing than men, but because the men have busied themselves making war. Because of our responsibility to the next generation, because of our own love for our families and communities, it is time we women devote ourselves — wholeheartedly — to the business of making peace.
CODEPINK has expanded its work into the following areas:
Peacemaking and militarism- Supporting the International Occupation Watch Center in Baghdad
- Sending peace delegations to Israel-Palestine, North & South Korea, Burma, Iran, Afghanistan, and Iraq
Life-affirming economic priorities- Books not Bombs in support of local libraries
Civil liberties- Education and advocacy of grassroots efforts to prevent passage of Patriot Act II
Environmental sustainability- Advocacy of more fuel efficient cars
- Support efforts to close Indian Point nuclear power plant in New York
Responsible Media and Reporting- Preserve diversity, localism, and competition
- Work to stop the implementation of the FCC ownership rulings
Elections and Voter Registration- Encourage women and other minorities to register to vote

“ We call on women around the world to rise up and oppose the war in Iraq. We call on mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters, on workers, students, teachers, healers, artists, writers, singers, poets and every ordinary outraged woman willing to be outrageous for peace. Women have been the guardians of life—not because we are better or purer or more innately nurturing than men, but because the men have busied themselves making war. Because of our responsibility to the next generation, because of our own love for our families and communities and this country that we are a part of, we understand the love of a mother in Iraq for her children and the driving desire of that child for life” — Starhawk
