Peace Alliance Conference to Lobby Congress

Here are a few pics from last week at the Peace Alliance Conference in Washington DC. I spent the entire weekend with over a hundred other Peace Delegates  from around the country learning how to lobby Congress. It was an amazing experience with many details to grasp. Then, on Monday I was let loose to visit with my New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and Senator Shumer's Sr. staffers.  In one of the photos you can see that I am supported by the Peace Alliance Board of Directors, who took me under their wings as the "newbie".  There is a lot to learn. But this lobbying for Peace is addictive....!  

Let's make our voices heard by contacting our local and state Members of Congress.
