The president is putting the final touches on next year’s budget now, and with global tensions on a razor’s edge, “security” is certain to be a top priority. But for decades, the U.S. government has spent more on weapons and war than any other country on earth — and it didn’t make anyone, anywhere, any safer.
It’s time to rethink this broken approach.
This year, we could pour even more bombs and bullets into a world where violence is increasing by the second — unless activists like you speak up to demand something different.
This moment marks the start of a legislative marathon to press the White House and Congress to reject the misguided notion that BILLIONS for weapons and war are the only way to keep us safe and help us thrive.
The President’s budget proposal is due in the next few weeks and that means the clock is already ticking. To influence policymakers in the White House and make a real impact, the time to act is NOW.
Budgets are moral documents that should reflect our values and priorities. Can you call on President Biden to invest in human needs and cut the Pentagon budget now?
