Open 1 Million Doors

“Mission Accomplished.” The lies about WMDs. Yellowcake. The Saddam-9/11 connection.

From start to finish, the Iraq war has been a disaster. But unless we work together, the politicians who supported it may be let off the hook.

And for the sake of history, if nothing else, we can’t let that happen. So on Saturday, September 20th, we’re partnering with our friends across the anti-war movement in one of the biggest days of action on the war yet. We’re aiming for a truly ambitious goal: knock on ONE MILLION doors to talk to key voters about Iraq.

Can you join us?

Something like this hasn’t really been done before—definitely not at this scale. Usually when people think of a canvass during an election year, they think it’s for a candidate. But if this election is about real issues, like the ongoing occupation in Iraq, we can’t lose.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Just click the link and sign up.
  • Our partners at the campaign will send you a list of 40 people in your neighborhood. These are folks who either just registered to vote or are registered but don’t always vote.
  • On September 20th, we’ll talk to these folks person-to-person and ask them to sign a petition calling on the next president and Congress to bring our troops home from Iraq within a year.
  • We’ll talk to folks from every political party.
  • On Election Day we’ll get them to vote for people who will finally bring an end to this war.

This isn’t preaching to the choir—this is making our movement bigger and stronger for next year. Can you join us?
