Text and Call-In Event

You can work with a local team to organize a small tabling event on a campus or at a local International Day of Peace event, or it can be as simple as asking your friends, family and colleagues to take the mobile action (your friends who don’t use texting can still call).  Be creative and participate in anyway you can!  See more possibilities below.

The Peace Alliance is rewarding the activist champions who recruit the most mobile team sign-ups and calls to the Senate with coupons for free Ben & Jerry's ice cream -- enough for a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s each month for a year! Text PROMISE to 738674 to join the challenge, and check back on September 30 to log your efforts online.   

Your support will help magnify the impact of our Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream events in Los Angeles, CA; Ann Arbor, MI; Boston, MA; Washington, DC; Philadelphia, PA; San Diego, CA Gainesville, FL, and various other events planned on or around September 21st!  September is our final chance to move this legislation through both houses before the new Congress next year.  Sign-up today to help us make it happen!
