PEACE, NOT POVERTY! is a political and cultural event held on the eve of the United Nations Summit to assess the U.N.’s Millennium Development Goals. U.S. proposals threaten the Summit’s commitments to end poverty, curb the flow of arms, protect the environment, advance women's rights and other human rights, end the scourge of war, and ultimately strengthen the very authority and legitimacy of the United Nations.

In 1967 at Riverside Church, Dr. King called for an end to war and poverty. Almost forty years later, the casualties mount as a result of war and poverty, from Baghdad to New Orleans. We must act now!

Sponors include: Action Aid, Africa Action, Institute for Policy Studies, 50 Years is Enough, Bridge Initiative, United for Peace and Justice, Global Call to Action Against Poverty, International Forum on Globalization, Jubilee USA, Riverside Church, September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, Solidarity Africa, TransAfrica Forum, Youth Coalition
