Help your city adopt a “Move the Money” resolution!

 

This fall, Milwaukee’s Com­mon Coun­cil unan­i­mously adopted a “Move the Money” res­o­lu­tion, call­ing for the redi­rec­tion of over­seas mil­i­tary spend­ing back to our com­mu­ni­ties for human needs.  With the fis­cal bat­tle loom­ing in early 2013, let’s send a mes­sage to Con­gress – Move the Money!

Join WNPJ and Peace Action’s statewide and national res­o­lu­tion effort!
