Instead of firing Tomahawk missiles into Syria and dropping the 'Mother of all Bombs' in Afghanistan, we need education, health care, green jobs, and humanitarian aid. So this Mother's Day we will join the Granny Peace Brigade to march for life, love, & mothers, and to say NO to Trump's proposed $54 billion increase in military spending.
Let's get together to celebrate the nurturing essence of motherhood and take action to build a local peace economy. In the words of Julia Ward Howe who put out the first call for a Mother's Day: "From the bosom of the devastated earth, a voice goes up with our own. It says, 'Disarm, disarm!'"
12:30pm - We will meet up with the Granny Peace Brigade at the Manhattan entrance of the Staten Island Ferry and stroll through Battery Park - alerting people of the cost of war
2-4pm - Gather at the Battery Park gardens for a carnival to celebrate life and the creation mothers bring to the world
Join us in awareness and celebration, as we walk, dance, and sing for peace!
