Each year, about two-thirds of the United States' budget is spent on militarized responses to problems—including the Pentagon, abusive immigration enforcement, and policing. This money could have had a transformative impact on things that would actually make our communities healthy, safe, and strong—like education, universal health care, or peacebuilding.
The wind warnings in D.C. are saying that there could be 60mph winds tomorrow, which would make traveling with the float difficult. We're going to reschedule the "Demilitarize the Budget" event for a date TBD.
Join us on April 30th to call on Congress to move our money out of militarism and into communities!
