BFP is part of the Move the Money/NYC Coalition supporting Res. 747-A. This resolution will put New York City on record demanding that the funds which are now being squandered on the Pentagon be redirected to our real needs. One third of the City Council has already co-sponsored! We’re gearing up to get the rest on board.
See the video of our recent Town Hall, or the PowerPoint slides.
Check here to see if your City Councilperson is among the 17 co-sponsors of Res. 747-A. If not, please contact them by phone, email, or tweet. Don’t know your Councilmember? Go here to find your councilperson.
