Get on the Bus Charlottesville for the October 2nd "One Nation Working
Together" March in Washington
The Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice has chartered a bus
to bring our message of peace to the October 2nd "One Nation Working
Together" march and rally in Washington DC.
http://www.onenationforpeace.org/ Thousands will gather in unity to
call for an end to the wars, for green jobs, immigrants rights,
equality, and economic justice. US Labor Against War, NAACP, and
AFL-CIO are among the many sponsors of the event. We find it extremely
important that the call for peace is heard loud and clear- and we need
your help! Seats on the bus are now only $25 per person or $15 for
students and people with low incomes. You must pay in advance, so
reserve your seat now!
Call or e-mail:

Stay tuned to CCPJ for more details and updates! CCPJ will be covering
quite a bit of the expense for this trip. Please feel free to make a
donation through the "Support CCPJ" link on this page or to pay a
little extra when you reserve your seat! Thank You!
