Action Alert 5: Donate to WNPJ this Giving Tuesday
Background:
 Although throughout the year many of you donated specifically to support the Racial Justice Tipping Point Campaign, we were unsuccessful in our attempts to find a grant to support our other work. To cover the shortfall, we had to dip into our reserves. Generally we are able to find another grant, however, rather than waiting for that to happen, this year we ask that you help us end the year with replenished reserves!
Take Action: Donate one time, give a little every month, or make or buy a Peace Wreath. No matter how you support WNPJ, your time, energy, and dollars are always greatly appreciated as we work together for a peaceful, just, and sustainable world.
