By overfunding weapons of war instead of investing in the tools to address present and future human security challenges, President Biden’s proposed Pentagon budget fails to truly keep us safe — a reality underscored by the coronavirus pandemic.
Bloated Pentagon spending undermines funding for essential programs, particularly non-military solutions to security challenges and fails to address real human needs, like education and healthcare — here at home, but also across the globe.
In the spirit of broadening our collective people power impact, Win Without War staff have put together a creative way for you to call for a redistribution of Pentagon funds through social media…
Use our blank check template and share where you would spend the proposed three-quarters of a trillion dollars currently slated for the Pentagon:
- Print out one of these checks or make your own!
- Dedicate the check to something you want to see the funds invested in (i.e. Department of Peace)
- Post to your social media (Twitter/Facebook/Instagram) and tag @WinWithoutWar using the hashtags: #DefundThePentagon and #PeopleOverPentagon
- Tag a few friends and challenge them to do the same!
Thanks for taking action with us!
