Help CODEPINK mobilise women to promote peace and end war!

type: Campaign, NGO, Volunteering
by: Yair Oded

Founded in 2002, CODEPINK is a women-led grassroots organization dedicated to ending U.S. wars and militarism, promote peace and human rights initiatives, and funnel federal and state money into “life affirming programs” and targets, such as healthcare, education, and green jobs.

While the organization isn’t restricted to women members, and warmly welcomes all types of supporters (whatever their gender identity or affiliation is), they set it as their primary goal to encourage women of all ages, professions, and backgrounds to rally together, promote peaceful and humane agenda, and oppose war.

Donning pink outfits (the group’s trademark), CODEPINK members operate across the U.S. and engage in satire, street theatre, and organized civil resistance demonstrations. They hold workshops and various types of events, and launch petitions to promote their different causes and directly impact government leaders and heads of corporations.   

The organization operates through a network of dedicated local organizers (they currently have 250 groups of local supporters across the United States), online supporters, and donors. They have sent expeditions to various conflict zones around the world and collaborate with 12 different international partners.
