Peace Vigil at White House

$1,860 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 30 months
In June, 1981 William Thomas began a 24 hour vigil protest outside the White House for world peace and to pressure governments to rid the world of nuclear weapons. After many court hearings and legal challenges to his protest, a permanent modest site was legally permitted across from the North Portico of the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Peace Vigil has remained on the sidewalk for 24 hours a day for over 35 years, since June, 1981, the longest running protest for world peace in the Americas.

We seek support for our volunteer peace activists to supplement their food, water, transportation, and clothing for cold winters and hot summers, as well as for the site upkeep and printed materials about our purpose, which we provide to the public for free.

We must remain present at the Peace Vigil at all times or the permit would be cancelled by the Park Service. Your generous donation will help us teach the message of peace and nuclear disarmament to the hundreds who pass by our tent every day. Thank you. JLZ

DCfred here. Philipos is currently on a hunger strike (fast) for Ethiopia. Now, more than ever in recent history, do we need the Peace Vigil. It is not only visible to any tourist who comes to visit the White House, but it is clearly visible from the windows of the south side of the living quarters: https://youtu.be/vbCVEprvpjY
