Add your Name & Tell the Senate: Cut the Pentagon budget!
Pandemic, economic collapse, and national uprisings against police violence and systemic white supremacy have laid bare the disconnect between our priorities and the resources they receive. It’s time to cut the Pentagon budget and redirect those funds to critically needed social services.
I urge you to vote to pass the Sanders-Markey-Warren amendment to the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act.
Why is this important?
In a moment of national reckoning amidst continuing state violence against Black, Brown, and Muslim communities at home and abroad, record job loss, and a re-surging coronavirus pandemic, Congress seems to think it’s time for business as usual.
And they are about to pass a MASSIVE spending bill that would provide the Pentagon with a record breaking $740.5 BILLION.
It’s clear that too many of our Senators simply don't get it. Luckily, our champions in Congress DO — will you add your name to join with them?
Senators Sanders, Markey, and Warren, joined across the Capitol by progressive allies like Representatives Barbara Lee, Mark Pocan, and Pramila Jayapal in the House, are marking this moment with bold vision. Together, they are leading on a call for a 10% cut to the Pentagon budget — $74 BILLION — to create jobs, improve education, and make housing more affordable across the country.
Sign your name now to support an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act calling for a 10 percent cut in the Pentagon budget!
