From Seattle to Charlottesville to Milwaukee, local communities are demanding a shift away from runaway war and weapons spending, freeing up our resources to meet our urgent community needs.
Let's make Dane County the next region to demand that we Bring Our War $$ Home!
Speaking at the peace rally in Madison October 6th, marking the 11th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, Dane County Board Supervisor Kyle Richmond (pictured, left) said he intends to introduce a BOW$H resolution later this month.
We need your help to make sure it passes!
To get involved, contact the Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice at (608) 250-9240 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To contact the Dane County Board in support of Bring Our War $$ Home, see www.countyofdane.com/board.

What better way to make clear the obscene level of U.S. war and weapons spending, than to put it into perspective -- comparing it with both other countries' military budgets and with unmet needs in your own community?
Those are the goals of our Bring Our War $$ Home (BOW$H) campaign -- and you can help.
This Saturday, mark the eleventh anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan by rallying for peace.
In Milwaukee, meet at the Milwaukee County Courthouse (south steps) at noon for a rally featuring Progressive editor Matt Rothschild, followed by peace messaging at intersections and overpasses.
In Madison, meet at the UW Library Mall at 11 am, followed by a march up State Street and a rally at the plaza outside the Veterans Museum at noon.
