2018 March on the Pentagon

We are a women-led non-partisan pro-peace anti-imperialist and anti-war movement comprised of thousands of supporters from across the world who have had enough of the US war machine. Some of us have been lifelong activists, others woke up during the last presidential election. However we got here, we have one thing in common: We wholeheartedly believe that the US war machine must be stopped.
