Veterans for Peace - Tell Congress to Cut Military Spending

In the next few weeks, the House will vote on legislation to increase the Pentagon budget to its highest level in U.S. history.

Demand your representative support these important amendments to cut Pentagon bloat!

Did you hear that the House Armed Services Committee voted to increase Pentagon spending by $25 billion more than President Biden requested, which could bring total military spending to a whopping $778 billion in FY2022? 

That’s right. This is the same Pentagon budget that’s already bigger than the next 12 largest country’s military budgets combined.

Join in Solidarity - to Cut the Pentagon for people, peace, and planet!

On September 12, CODEPINK, The Institute for Policy Studies, The People’s Forum, World Beyond War and more will host a teach-in in front of the White House where we will physically cut the Pentagon -- a Pentagon cake that is -- to mark the beginning of 100 days of action to Cut the Pentagon for people, peace, and planet! RSVP for the event here!

Sign the Petition: No More Attacks on Afghanistan

On the evening of Thursday, August 26, hours after a suicide bomb was detonated at the gate of Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport killing and wounding scores of Afghans trying to flee their country, U.S. President Joe Biden spoke to the world from the White House, “outraged as well as heartbroken.” Many of us listening to the president’s speech, made before the victims could be counted and the rubble cleared, did not find comfort or hope in his words. Instead, our heartbreak and outrage were only amplified as Joe Biden seized the tragedy to call for more war.

HELP FOR AFGHAN REFUGEES

From Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice: As people of faith, we are all deeply distressed at the human cost of the 20-years long war in Afghanistan, and the devastating impact of the US withdrawal over the last few weeks.  Many of us are wondering how we can help the influx of Afghan refugees who have been brought to Wisconsin andmay be settling here.

Sign the Petition to Stop the Basing of F-35s at Truax Air Base in Madison, WI

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED WISCONSIN RESIDENTS, publicly raise our voices to oppose basing an F-35A Joint Strike Fighter Force in Madison and we demand that Senator Tammy Baldwin stand with us and our community. Rather than make us more secure, the F-35 boondoggle threatens our security because it robs us of the resources we need to combat pandemics, the climate crisis, inadequate infrastructure and education, and support affordable housing and healthcare.
