Move Our Money!!!!
from War to Our Communities
Without redirecting resources from military buildup to domestic needs, there’s no way the Biden-Harris administration will be able to fund the large-scale programs urgently needed to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, invest in health care, jobs, infrastructure, education and more. Join us in pushing, on the local and national level.
Check out the 14 policy priorities of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.
Closest to home: Get the NYC City Council to Take a Stand! NYC City Council Res 747-A calls on the federal government to move significant funds away from the military budget to fund human needs and services, and for in-depth public hearings to be conducted on the dollar amounts that the City needs but that get diverted to the Pentagon.
17 Council-people are co-sponsors. We need 26 for a majority, and 35 for a super-majority to insure that it will pass. Looking at the city’s looming budget shortfall, this is urgent.
Find your Councilperson here. Are they on the list of co-sponsors? Contact them to demand that they put their money where their mouth is, and push to get colleagues to sign on as well. Are they missing from the list? Contact them to urge them to sign on.
Are you looking for a way to make a difference by acting locally while thinking globally? BFP is part of Move the Money–NYC, a city-wide coalition. YOUR participation will make it stronger!
