Happy Mother’s Day

Instead of flowers, give us peace. Instead of brunch, end the wars. Let no more mothers raise their children to kill other mothers’ children. Give us, instead, the abolition of war, the promotion of peace, and the care of people and planet.

This Mother’s Day join us to #DivestFromWar with CODEPINK.
