Each year, Women Against Military Madness puts on a silent auction which is the major fundraiser for the organization. But because of the Covid 19 pandemic we will not be able to hold this event. Instead, we are initiating a GoFundMe campaign on Sept. 21,2020, The International Day of Peace.
WAMM's purpose is to "dismantle systems of militarism, economic exploitation and global oppression". At this time when the global pandemic necessitates a peaceful world working for the common good, the pandemic in the US has made apparent economic and social injustices. The police killing of George Floyd on May 245, 2020 in Minneapolis has launched a new wave of military madness at home with troops and military hardware being deployed in our neighborhoods.
It is imperative that WAMM continue to work in solidarity with other organizations for non-violence, social equity and justice through education and action. WAMM is asking for funding to continue this work. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this vital work.
