'Stop the War' CampaignDemocracy Rising seeks to Bring the Troops Home, End the Occupation by Empowering Activists across the Nation
Democracy Rising, a founding member of United for Peace and Justice, has been involved in opposing the war in Iraq from the beginning. The Democracy Rising peace project seeks to bring the troops home and end the occupation of Iraq by empowering activists so they cannot be ignored by decision makers in Washington, DC.
Democracy Rising is a national effort based in Washington, DC. Being inside-the-beltway gives the project a daily focus on the decision makers - in Congress and the Bush Administration - who are waging the illegal war and occupation of Iraq. Through people power - grass roots pressure - we will push Congress and President to end the occupation and bring the troops home.
As long-term DC activists we recognize that the power to end the war will not primarily come from the people inside Washington, DC - it will come from people throughout the country, speaking to their neighbors, friends, family, reports or media and elected representatives. The pressure to change the direction of Congress and the Bush administration comes from the people who elect them - the voters who live in their congressional districts. Therefore the focus of Democracy Rising is empowering the people so their elected officials not only hear them - but cannot ignore them.
We will provide anti-war advocates with the tools they need to be effective. The first tool is information. This web site not only provides you with the current news, but Democracy Rising's Iraq War Facts pages will be an ever-growing, consistently up-dated set of pages of key facts with citations on the Iraq war and occupation. Whether you are new to anti-war advocacy or have been involved since before the war began; whether you spend 20 minutes each week or 40 hours each week working to end the occupation, you will find Iraq War Facts an indispensable tool.
We'll also make it easier for you to reach the decision makers through click and send letters on our website - members of the Congress, Senate and Administration. In addition, Democracy Rising will connect you to key media outlets so you can send and get published letters to the editor - one of the most read sections of every newspaper. Even our merchandise page is designed to give you the information you need to get better informed and the tools you need to be a more effective advocate for peace. And, we will urge coordinated action by advocates from across the country because together we will have a stronger impact.
And, we want to get your feedback. What do you think is necessary to end the occupation and bring our troops home? On our bulletin boards we will encourage lively discussion of strategies and tactics, of what has worked in your community and what hasn't, of how we should come together as a movement to achieve our goals.
At Democracy Rising we believe civic involvement will make a difference, that an informed, activated and coordinated citizenry can end the war and bring our troops home safely, responsibly and quickly.
