Peace Action of Staten Island

2018 Make Food Not War Dinner

   Peace Action of Staten Island feels that it is important to honor the Peacemakers in our midst, who have dedicated time and sacrificed to make the Island and the world a better place. This year we will be holding the event on Saturday, October 27th, from 5 to 8 pm at the Olivet Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall at 97 Myrtle Ave in West Brighton, Staten Island. Musician Karlus Trapp will perform. We will be honoring four Staten Islanders: 

Safiyyah Abdul-Qawiyy – Founder, Muslim Sisters of Staten Island
Patricia Okoumou – #RETURNTHECHILDREN Protestor who scaled Lady Liberty
Ramsey Orta – Eric Garner’s friend who recorded his killing & sparked a movement
Cesar Vargas, Esq. – Co-Director, Dream Action Coalition

Have you noticed how candidates for Congress talk about taxes, transportation, education, and jobs, but never about the proposed $819 billion military budget, the U.S. military involvement in the Middle East, the $1.7 trillion new nuclear arms race, or the importance of diplomacy?

Peace Action is trying to change the conversation with the Peace Voter Campaign.  We have sent out candidate questionnaires, held 6 candidate briefings, hosted 7 candidates at an April 21st Candidates Forum, and created a Voter Guide to help voters compare candidates on key foreign policy issues. We want to help register voters too. If you want to join the Peace Voter Campaign, send an email to pasi.contact@gmail.com.
