UJP wants to hear your ideas about strategy for the peace and justice movement in 2010, and what programs and activities to sponsor. How can the peace movement be effective during the Obama administration, in the midst of economic recession and continuing wars and occupations? Education, mass action, congressional lobbying, supporting military families, outreach to progressive organizations -- what will work? What ideas have you taken away from the meetings and conferences you have attended? UJP hopes to facilitate a free ranging discussion to help clarify our thought and provide direction for action; please contribute to our discussion forum.

There were hundreds of heroes in the aftermath of Monday's tragic bombing attacks in Boston. Doctors, police officers and even former NFL players responded with tremendous courage and saved lives. Carlos Arredondo — easily recognizable in photos and videos because of his cowboy hat — was one of those heroes and is prominently featured in two of the more memorable and traumatic images from Monday's attack.
Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed Sunday morning while serving as an usher at his church in Witchita , Kansas . Since the 1970s, Dr. Tiller has provided critical abortion and reproductive health care at great personal risk. In doing so, he has saved the lives and futures of countless women and girls across the country. His murder is a tragedy for his family, friends, and colleagues. It is also a tragedy for the women who need his care and for the entire community of health care providers and advocates, and for all of us who believe in a woman's right to dignity and self-determination. Please join us in honoring this great man who truly lived by his motto to "Trust Women."
Join the Boston community in sharing our grief and celebrating the life of Dr. George Tiller, a true hero for women across the country.
