CodePink

CodePink is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S.-funded wars and occupations, challenge militarism globally, and redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs, and other life-affirming activities. It was launched on November 17, 2002, when a group of women set up a four-month vigil in front of the White House

A 2016 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the Local Peace Economy campaign’s online map. The map connects people globally and provides them with stories, information, and opportunities to build community and sustainability in different ways. While most of CodePink's campaigns challenge the war economy, this campaign creates an alternative world where the organization invests in local communities, people, and the earth.

A 2015 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported CodePink's Demilitarization - C.O.D.E. campaign, which works with Communities Organizing to Demilitarize Enforcement. The campaign's goals include ending federal programs the equip police departments with military weapons, creating effective civilian review of all allegations of police misconduct, and building support for the passage of the End Racial Profiling Act.

A 2014 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the Women Lead to Peace Summit in Geneva. The Summit called for a ceasefire in Syria, more humanitarian aid delivery to the victims of the conflict, and the active participation of Syrian women in peace talks.

A 2012 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the Occupy AIPAC gathering, which aimed to challenge the legitimacy of the annual policy meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Grants from the Cultures of Resistance Network in 2011 supported a stage performance of Alice Walker's Overcoming Speechlessness and funded the Move Over AIPAC demonstrations.

A Cultures of Resistance Network grant in 2009 helped CodePink establish a satellite media feed for the Gaza Freedom March.
