View detailed March 18-20 events calendar

Below is a list of 720 towns and cities, in all 50 states, that are holding events on the two-year anniversary of the Iraq War. The number and geographic spread of these events reflect the growing breadth of the anti-war movement; last year, on the first anniversary of the war, 319 cities and towns across the United States organized events.

This list has been compiled from numerous sources, principally from the United for Peace and Justice events calendar and the anti-war vigil listings of the American Friends Service Committee and Sojourners Magazine.
