We have received the heartbreaking news that the Kiriakou family is in danger of losing their home because mortgage payments are difficult to keep up with- they need $1,500 a month to keep up, and are $30,000 behind. His family needs our help to take care of their kids and keep a roof over their head. CODEPINK and FireDogLake are hosting a Father’s Day Fundraiser for one of our favorite dads, John Kiriakou. Our goal is to raise $30,000 so we can make sure they can keep their home. Please consider donating now.

If you live around the Washington, DC area, please join us for a fundraiser we’re hosting at the CODEPINK House (1241 Evarts St NE, Washington, D.C. 20018) on June 13th from 7-9:00pm. The Host Committee includes John Kiriakou’s sister Tina Moulis, Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans of CODEPINK, Jane Hamsher of FireDogLake, CIA Whistleblower Ray McGovern, author David Swanson, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, Col. Ann Wright, businessman Andy Shallal, whistleblower Marcel Reid, and Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg. Minimum suggested donation is $50 and appetizers will be served.
