POSTCARD CAMPAIGN: Urge Senator Graham to Ratify the START Treaty

The Carolina Peace Resource Center is sponsoring a postcard campaign asking Senator Lindsey Graham to vote YES to ratify the START treaty.  Senator Graham is seen as a pivotal swing vote who may be able to help bring the START Treaty to the floor of the Senate for a vote before Congress ends.  Already over 120 yellow postcards have been signed and sent to Senator Graham’s office… we are hoping to reach a thousand!  We need your help: SEND YOUR OWN POSTCARD IN, VOLUNTEER TO COLLECT SIGNATURES (Sept-Oct), DONATE TO COVER POSTAGE.
