Tuesday, Feb. 16 Capitol Calling Party: Cutting the Defense Budget with Reps. Barbara Lee and Mark Pocan

On Tuesday, February 16, Medea Benjamin, Marcy Winograd, and Hanieh Jodat-Barnes will be joined by special guests Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA13) and Mark Pocan (D-WI02), co-chairs of the Defense Spending Reduction Caucus!

On the heels of Congress passing a $740 billion military budget, Lee and Pocan will discuss how we can build congressional support for cutting the military budget to fund Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, education, and much more.

A week after introducing an amendment to cut the defense budget by 10%, Pocan and Lee — both members of the House Appropriations Committee — announced in July the creation of the Defense Spending Reduction Caucus. The caucus intends to build on the support garnered by the amendment, which received 93 votes in the House in 2020.

Following Lee and Pocan’s talk and Q & A, we will contact members of Congress to share our CODEPINK Guide to Pentagon Cuts and urge them to join the Defense Spending Reduction Caucus. RSVP to receive the Zoom link!
