CODEPINK: Women Acting Up!!

After watching the coordinated heckling of John McCain at his kiss-up session to Hispanic elected officials yesterday, I had to find out more about the women's organization called CODEPINK. Of course, if you've read this blog for awhile, you know that pink is my favorite color so I'd be attracted to this group anyway.

After perusing their website and checking the issues and campaigns they are dealing with and have already addressed, I must say that I am impressed. In addition to the war in Iraq, they also tackle the crisis in Darfur and our country's military recruitment tactics among other issues.

Now, I must point out that I didn't see nearly enough black women involved. I'm not sure what that's about so I'm giving an extra nudge to my sistahs with a request to get involved. I do know that I like CODEPINK's spirit and tenacity. Unfortunately, there's not a local group in Miami or I'd definitely get involved locally. I'm not one to heckle someone, even John McCain, but I do get the passion behind pushing the CODEPINK agenda.

I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that CODEPINK is open to all women and even the few men courageous enough to get involved. OK, that was a dig at the guys but I couldn't resist. These ladies have given the color pink a whole new image and I thank them for it.

CODEPINK will likely become an even more formidable force to deal with so stay tuned and see what these folks are up to next.
