On October 27th, United for Peace and Justice will hold simultaneous protests against the Iraq War in 11 US cities. Their coordinated national approach to protesting is important and timely. In support of their efforts, Serious Change calls on activists across the country to join us in wearing professional attire - whether you choose to officially affiliate yourself with us or not.

Our belief, as we have stated before, is that this tactic projects seriousness and determination to the administration and the American people. We stand in solidarity with all protesters. But by reclaiming the symbols of power, we will strengthen the antiwar movement.

So far, we have organizers and supporters committed to attending the New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago protests. We are excited that the movement is expanding, but we believe we can do better. Our goal is to have representatives from Serious Change in as many of the 11 cities as possible. These locations are:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Jonesborough, TN (map)
  • New Orleans
  • New York
  • Orlando
  • Philadelphia
  • Salt Lake City
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle

If you live in or near one of these cities and would like to help Serious Change with local organizing, or would like to attend the protest as part of our movement, please visit or contact us at or 773.396.8266. We also encourage you to sign up for our email list:

Thanks to Mike for sendin’ this one in.
