Mothers' Day Action in DC 2017

Event Description

Join us in Washington D.C. for a Peace Vigil and in front of the White House May 13 and a direct action May 12 to pink slip Trump and his military budget! 

We are facing multiple crises threatening the people of our communities, our country, and our world, and menacing our very planet. Military and climate wars are destroying lives and environments, and creating enormous flows of desperate refugees. Violent racism, Islamophobia, misogyny, homophobia and other hatreds are rising, encouraged by the most powerful voices in Washington.

Mothers, children, women creators, and other peoples have been impacted by decades of war and militarism. We will rise because we want to live in a world without weapons and war, without violence and hate, without bans and walls, where people can live without fear, where communities have what they need to thrive, and young generations can assert their rights to peace, justice, and health. We call for a world where we are spending our tax dollars and our energies supporting life.

Over half of federal discretionary spending already goes to the military. Trump’s proposed increase will make it over 60 percent! This investment in war, on top of being unnecessary and immoral, it is taking money away from programs that support women’s health and safety, from agencies that protect our environment, from health care, from education.

This Mothers’ Day, join us on the streets to tell the leaders in Congress to move our tax dollars out of the military!

We have marched, disrupted, and protested, and we will continue to do so, as we build the strong connections we need to create a better world.
