The Power of the Pen: Consider joining United for Peace and Justice


United for Peace & Justice regularly signs onto letters dealing with a broad range of important peace and justice issues, intended to influence government policy.

With a new administration in place, over the last month, UFPJ joined the Friends Committee on National Legislation, more than 70 other organizations, and over a dozen celebrities, in a letter to President Biden urging him to “demand an immediate and unconditional end” to Saudi Arabia’s military blockade on Yemen. 

UFPJ also joined a coalition of 55 advocacy groups and progressive organizations in a letter to Biden regarding a review of existing U.S. and multilateral financial sanctions, to demand that the administration indefinitely suspend broad-based sanctions on civilian sectors. 

UFPJ joined the National Iranian American Council and 43 partner organizations in a letter calling on President Biden to provide urgently needed sanctions relief for the people of Iran as they combat another deadly wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Finally, UFPJ joined more than 30 organizations endorsing a letter led by Congresswoman Marilyn Strickland (WA-10), encouraging the Biden Administration to consider a secure and sustainable path forward for U.S.-North Korea relations as the Administration conducts its North Korea policy review.

UFPJ is a diverse network of peace and justice organizations.....including WNPJ!
