🎉Let’s celebrate! If you haven't heard, Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Mark Pocan (D-WI) have started the new Defense Spending Reduction Caucus in Congress!
Ask your representative to join the new Congressional Defense Spending Reduction Caucus so we can continue to convince our representatives of the urgent need to cut the Pentagon budget and invest in human needs.
In 2020, Representatives Barbara Lee and Mark Pocan introduced historic legislation to cut the Pentagon budget by $74 billion (10%). A record 116 members of Congress voted to reduce the Pentagon budget and as a result, Representatives Barbara Lee and Mark Pocan launched the Defense Spending Reduction Caucus. We need to continue to build support to reduce the Pentagon budget and invest in what really makes us safe: Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, housing for all, full employment, great public education, and much more. Contact your representative and ask them to join the Defense Spending Reduction Caucus!
✍️When you contact your representatives, you can use our CODEPINK guide to Pentagon Budget Cuts to educate them and offer concrete ways to reduce the Pentagon budget. For example, did you know that even if we just cut the Pentagon budget by 10% ($74 billion), we could end homelessness in the United States?
It’s imperative that our representatives understand the true costs of continuing to pour hundreds of billions of dollars into the Pentagon budget every year, and they need to hear from their constituents like you! Contact your representative and ask them to join the Defense Spending Reduction Caucus and educate them using our CODEPINK guide to Pentagon budget cuts!
P.S.- 🎟️On February 25 at 5:30PM PT/8:30PM ET join us for a webinar exploring the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to Military pipeline. RSVP here for the webinar!
