The 2021 budget for the Pentagon and related agencies is $741 billion, larger than the next eight countries combined. This year Congress voted to increase the military budget by $30 billion, an amount that exceeds the entire budget of the Environmental Protection Agency.

In 2021 we will spend over $2 billion a day on the U.S. military, more than a million dollars every minute.

At the same time, the movement to Defund the Pentagon and invest in our local communities is growing. 

But how will we transition from a war-based economy to a local peace economy?   

During this webinar we’ll hear from Taylor Barnes, a a multilingual Atlanta-based investigative journalist who covers militarism, the defense industry, and foreign affairs, about their recent piece in Southerly Magazine, From arms to renewables: How workers in this Southern military industrial hub are converting the economy”
