Am I a CODEPINK Member?

A:

powertopeaple.jpgWithout the regular trappings of dues, official induction or secret handshakes to learn, many people wonder how they know when they are members of CODEPINK. Just using the word member implies that there is an established organization and accepted code of behavior to which you have to pledge in order to be included as one of the privileged few. CODEPINK doesn't have members. We don't require official affiliation to speak, act, or protest with CODEPINK.

People* committed to creative protest against militarism and injustice are CODEPINK. People who want to influence a shift in the focus of world society and governments from militarism to life-affirming endeavors are CODEPINK. People who are not ashamed to wear a big pink button, and thereby encourage conversation are CODEPINK. People who are not afraid to be unreasonable or to be called un-patriotic in the name of peace and social justice are CODEPINK. People who realize that you must be the change you want to see in this world are CODEPINK.

*People includes all people regardless of their gender. Though initiated by women and composed primarily of women, CODEPINK does not discriminate on the basis of gender, sex, ethnicity, age, religion, or social-economic status. (This answer written by CODEPINKOrlando.)
