Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama

In early 2008 Esther Moroze, a peace activist signed a petition circulated by Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama[6].

In the coming elections, it is important to remember that war and peace are as much \"women\'s issues\" as are health, the environment, and the achievement of educational and occupational equality. Because we believe that all of these concerns are not only fundamental but closely intertwined, this Tuesday we will be casting our vote for Senator Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

Stepping down

In 2014 Esther Moroze stepped down from her national leadership role with the party.

According to John Bachtell;

Esther has been in national leadership for over 40 years most recently as co-chair of the Membership Committee. She has been one of the pioneers of our work with the thousands of new members who have joined online - no doubt many of you received your first call from Esther. She's going to continue to make contributions with helping rebuild the New York district and organizing in the South.[7]
