CODEPINK Exhibit Coming to Civil Rights Museum

Posted By on Wed, May 23, 2007 at 4:00 AM

A traveling exhibit honoring U.S. soldiers, Iraqi civilians, and international journalists who have died in the Iraq War is coming to the National Civil Rights Museum’s courtyard on Saturday, May 26, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Titled “The CODEPINK Peace Ribbon,” the exhibit features more than 130 fabric panels hand-made by volunteers. The Memphis CODEPINK chapter will add a memorial panel for each of the seven local soldiers who have died in Iraq as of May 1, 2007, and a panel listing the names of all 72 Tennessee soldiers who have died since the war’s inception.

Since March 2005, the Peace Ribbon has been displayed in various cities from New York to Honolulu.

CODEPINK is a grassroots organization working to end war and promote social justice. For more information call 359-2652 or email
