Ms. McKinney, who is in NYC this weekend to speak on the impact of 9/11 and to support the Rally Against Racism and Islamophobia, will also have the latest news on her current Bike Across America For Peace (Bike4Peace) Campaign (due to arrive in Washington, D.C. in early October).

Hawkins,the Green Party Governor candidate, has called to cut the
military budget
by at least 50% to provide a peace dividend to fund a
WPA-style Jobs program, a transition to a carbon-free energy system,and affordable housing. Hawkins also wants to stop the use of predator drones, which are controlled from the Hancock air base outside of Syracuse, in the Middle East wars.
