Tell Your Representative to Support The Third Reconstruction Act!

Call on your Congressional representative to join Reps. Barbara Lee and Pramila Jayapal to support the Third Reconstruction: Fully Addressing Poverty and Low Wages From the Bottom Up

Reps. Barbara Lee and Pramila Jayapal joined with leaders of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival to introduce a new bill, the Third Reconstruction: Fully Addressing Poverty and Low Wages From the Bottom Up, which calls for bold action to address the inter-connected injustices of systemic racism, ecological devastation, and militarism.

The bill calls on Congress to:

  1. cut the military budget by at least 10 percent and provide for a just transition for workers in militarized industries; 
  2. end the forever wars, repealing existing Authorizations for the Use of Military Force, and restore Congress’s war powers, including over limited uses of force such as airstrikes and drone attacks; 
  3. recognize the three pillars of foreign policy (diplomacy, development, and defense) and pursue diplomacy over war, including reconsidering forward military deployments, instituting a nuclear no-first-use commitment, and moving toward nuclear disarmament and curtailing the use of broad economic sanctions that create mass suffering.

    I hope they do more than write sternly worded letters. Vote as a bloc, demand concessions!
