The WAND ( Women’s Action for New Directions) team urges its activists to join the national call-in day to reduce spending on nuclear weapons.
On February 27, companion bills were introduced in the House and Senate that would cut $100 billion in wasteful spending on nuclear weapons over 10 years. In the Senate, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced S. 2070, the Smarter Approach to Nuclear Expenditures (SANE) Act and in the House, Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced H.R. H.R.4107, the Reduce Expenditures in Nuclear Infrastructure Now (REIN-IN) Act.
On Tuesday, March 25, join activists around the country for a National Call-in Day to reduce wasteful nuclear weapons spending! Call your U.S. Senators and Representative and ask them to co-sponsor these bills!
Your Members of Congress need to know that you won’t tolerate excessive spending on 20th century weapons when human needs continue to go unmet.
Responsible cuts to the nuclear weapons budget will enhance the security of our nation. These cuts will free up money in the budget for more important national priorities.
