Join A Codepink Webinar

Jul 31, 2018 by


It is a busy week for us at CODEPINK. This morning we were in the halls of Congress calling for the abolition of ICE. This evening we will be in front of the Israeli embassy celebrating the release of Ahed Tamimi from Israeli prison.

We are also spending the week deepening our understanding of the issues we work on. To do this, we are hosting a series of webinars on Iran, Korea, Palestine, Yemen and Blackrock/Divest from War.

All webinars will be hosted live on our Facebook page or you can participate through this link.
