Thursday in Great Neck: Vigil for peace and diplomacy

Dear MoveOn member,

This is the week Congress votes for war or peace.

Thanks to the incredible work of thousands of MoveOn members and allies, 38 senators have now pledged to support peace and diplomacy.1

But the war hawks aren't giving up, so neither can we. In just a few days, as Congress begins voting on the Iran nuclear accord, Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are planning a massive pro-war rally in Washington, DC in a last-ditch effort to sway enough Democrats to abandon diplomacy.2

That's why MoveOn members and our allies are countering Trump and Cruz and declaring our support for peace and diplomacy by holding hundreds of candlelight vigils for peace all across the country this Thursday evening, including one in Great Neck.

Can you attend the vigil in Great Neck, join the call for peace, and show your support for diplomacy with Iran?

Yes, I'll be there!

We've come too far and are too close to a historic victory to let these warmongers derail diplomacy. Please join with thousands of pro-peace activists this Thursday and send a message to Congress: vote for peace, not more war.

Thanks for all you so. 

Matt, Alejandro, Jo, Corinne, and the rest of the team
