SUN: Fund Healthcare Not Warfare! Second Annual Forum (On-line)
June 11 @ 2:00 PM – 5:30 PM
The tragic death toll from the COVID-9 pandemic revealed the deep malfunctions of the nation’s healthcare system. One of the sources, inadequately reported, has been the diversion of our tax dollars to military programs and foreign wars – over half of Congressional discretionary funding. Critical budgets needed to protect the health and safety of our people – for the NIH, CDC, NSF, Food Stamps, Housing, Veteran’s Administration and other core civilian programs – have been limited in order to feed Pentagon programs. This Conference will explore the reality that funding these critical programs at the needed levels will require political mobilization and cutting Pentagon accounts.
