Mission Statement

United for Peace and Justice is the largest peace coalition in the country consisting of more than 1400 local and national groups throughout the United States who have joined together to oppose our government's policy of permanent warfare and empire-building.

We seek to serve as a movement-building coalition that coordinates and supports the work of existing groups and builds linkages, solidarity and unity where none or little exist.

Description

Since our founding in October 2002, UFPJ has spurred hundreds of protests and rallies around the country, and organized the two largest demonstrations against the Iraq war. As part of a February 15, 2003 global day of protest, "The World Says No to War" UFPJ helped coordinate and publicize more than 790 demonstrations worldwide, and organized a historic rally at the United Nations headquarters in New York City that drew more than half a million participants.

In August 29, 2004 UFPJ organized to protest the Republican National Convention that brought in over half a million people.

Our next mobilization will be in Washington DC on Saturday January 27th to deliver our message to : The people of this country want the war and occupation in Iraq to end and we want the troops brought home now! Join Us!
