1. Start your own VotersForPeace pledge drive!
You can help build the peace movement by downloading our pledge form and getting all of your friends and family to sign the pledge. Better yet, use the pledge as a way to build your own membership base and community visibility! Use it as leverage to meet with local candidates and incumbents, create a media buzz around the pledge, and show your elected officials that they cannot ignore peace voters!
