Special Report - IRAQ Before, During & After

Texans for Peace has been involved in Iraq since before the current war. As part of our Peace Ambassadors project, Charlie Jackson visited Iraq in January of 2003 and again in November-December of that same year.

We have remained at the forefront of this issue because of its affects on the lives of Texans - thousands of Texas families have sent their loved ones abroad to fight the war - and because of our close connection to the issues there.

The following section helps bring to light the human costs of the war, the positions of those of us opposed to the invasion, and solutions and actions that can be taken. From active participation in the Women's Business Center of Baghdad (WBCB) and the Iraqi reconstruction efforts to supporting Texas military families opposed to war, Texans for Peace will continue to fight for just solutions abroad as well as at home.
