In the face of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation, the war economy, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism — we must engage in mass nonviolent moral direct action. Why does the U.S. government have money for war but not for the poor? We must declare that we won’t be silent anymore about the war on the poor by ensuring that the pentagon’s bloated budget is cut and redirected to our needs!
Join CODEPINK with three esteemed organizers, scholars, and movement leaders as we discuss what it will take to build the visionary antiwar movement that our world desperately needs right now. As we get ready to take to the streets in Washington, DC with the Poor People’s Campaign on June 18th, come learn and get energized with us.
