Last month, Congress passed and Trump signed a record Pentagon budget of $738 billion — $738,000,000,000 — more than the next 10 countries in the world combined! The Democratic leaders in both the House and Senate supported this obscene war budget; without them, it wouldn’t have passed. At the same time, the Trump regime announced it was kicking up to four million people, half of them children, off food stamps starting January 1, 2020 — and then moved to start another deadly war in the Middle East.
Across the country, people are fighting back including with the Poor People’s Campaign, a revival of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1968 campaign that worked to unite and organize all poor and oppressed people against the evils of poverty, racism, and war. Join us to discuss how we can fight to fund people’s needs, not more wars!
