The recent Build Back Better and infrastructure negotiations, elections, and COP26 are a clear signal that we still need to work as hard as we can to build our power.
And we can’t work fast enough. Because while legislation that would help our communities sits on the chopping block, several powerful senators are getting set to ram through an astronomical $778 BILLION Pentagon budget to fund more weapons and war — as soon as next week.
Constituent calls make a HUGE impact, and that’s why we need you to pick up the phone NOW. Because here’s the thing: without grassroots pressure from activists like YOU, we can’t be sure that enough senators will prioritize our communities over weapons contractors’ profits.
