Alli McCracken is a local coordinator in the CODEPINK: Women for Peace Washington D.C. office, and a long time peace enthusiast. She graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in May 2010 with a degree in Political Science and Religious Studies. Inspired by the Tree of Life 2010 Journey, after graduating from college she lived in the West Bank town of Beit Sahour for several months, doing volunteer work at a senior citizens center and at the Palestine Wildlife Society. Upon returning to the US she shared her experience at the Tree of Life 2011 Conference, and went on the Tree of Life Journey again in 2011. Alli is now a member of the Tree of Life Board of Directors, and she highly recommends the TOL trip and conference!

Through her work with CODEPINK, Alli has organized and participated in several campaigns aimed at shaping a new American foreign policy in the Middle East- one that respects the rights of all people in the region. She helped plan the conference Move Over AIPAC in May 2011 (www.MoveOverAIPAC.org), she mobilized support around the Freedom Flotilla II to Gaza, and she is an active participant of CODEPINK's Stolen Beauty campaign to boycott the cosmetics company Ahava, which produces its goods in illegal Israeli settlements using stolen Palestinian resources (www.stolenbeauty.org). Through CODEPINK Alli is also working to end the wars, bring our war dollars home, ban drone attacks, expose war profiteers, and amplify voices of peace throughout the world- especially women's.

CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S. funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities. CODEPINK emerged out of a desperate desire by a group of American women to stop the Bush administration from invading Iraq. The name CODEPINK plays on the Bush Administration's color-coded homeland security alerts — yellow, orange, red — that signal terrorist threats. While Bush's color-coded alerts were based on fear and were used to justify violence, the CODEPINK alert is a feisty call for women and men to "wage peace."
