WNPJ Action Alerts - Bring Our War Dollars Home!

WNPJ is working to bring our war dollars home.  So far, three resolutions have been passed in our state -- in Dane County, a "Move the Money" resolution in Milwaukee by member group Peace Action, and by the AFT-WI labor union.  We would like to further this education and take creative actions to bring the 57% of our federal budget allocated to military spending home, to create jobs and bolster local communities.

I am Z! Haukeness and am excited to be the new Bring Our War Dollars Home part-time organizer.  I have collaborated with WNPJ and worked for racial and social justice organizations in Madison and nationally.  I was born in a small town, Strum, close to Eau Claire and look forward to connecting with you so we can Bring Our War Dollars Home!

Why take action now?

Military spending is out of control.  Although we have seen some draw-down in Iraq and Afghanistan, there's been an increase in drone warfare and conflict elsewhere.

The "sequestration" federal cuts have left local communities feeling the recession / depression even harder.  More people support cutting the military budget and putting that money towards social programs, education and job creation.

Jobs Not Wars is a national organization pushing for actions from June 21st to July 3rd.  This is a great opportunity for us to connect nationally and to spur some action throughout the state!  Below are some ideas to get you started.
