Inauguration on January 20th in solidarity with actions happening in DC

Statement by United for Justice with Peace (Boston)
UJP calls on the peace and antiwar community to support both local and national protests of the Trump presidency during inauguration week and the women's rights march in January. We need to oppose racist appointments and many other actions and policies, and promote our alternative vision of peace and social justice.
The 2016 presidential campaign barely mentioned the wars abroad; both candidates had a pro-war stance disregarding considerable public skepticism about the wars. The massive war economy and war budget is a major contributor to the income inequality that fueled the anger and discontent of much of the electorate, both Democratic and Republican.
Would you enjoy singing in a spirited and harmonious multi-generational chorus? A Besere Velt is a great place to give it a try!

We are looking for new members this fall. There are no auditions, and no knowledge of Yiddish is required.
No War 2016 will be a conference, workshops, and nonviolent action in Washington, D.C., September 23-26, livestreamed to events in other countries, and overlapping with other peace events in places all over the earth.
