Welcome to the blog for the Hampton Roads Chapter of CODEPINK!

CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities. We reject the Bush administration's fear-based politics that justify violence, and instead calls for policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.

We welcome all who would like to participate and share ideas. Please check out the national
CODEPINK site for more information and then email us if you live in the Hampton Roads area and would like to participate.
