In their December 2006 issue of Organization Trends, Capital Research Center (CRC) published a lengthy article on Code Pink , a group founded by activist Jodi Evans and of whom "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan is a member. As stated in the article,

"Code Pink describes itself as a 'grassroots peace and social justice movement.' It was founded in November 2002 as the U.S. was about to topple Saddam Hussein, but more generally it has aimed to coordinate feminist protests against George W. Bush and the war on terror. The group is...against the U.S. economic system, against U.S. foreign and domestic policies, and against the American culture of 'racism' and 'sexism.'"
