AFSC Budget Advocacy Training

03/05/2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Demilitarizing the Budget: Important even in times of war

As the war in Ukraine adds to the many violent conflicts around the world, govenments are responding by increasing military budgets, sending weapons to allies, and calling for escalatory measures against other nations. In 2020, the world spent almost $2 trillion on militaries, and if we don’t join together, this number will only get worse.

In this webinar, you’ll learn why the United States’ obscene spending on weapons and war isn’t actually keeping us safe, how the budget and appropriations process works, and how you can get involved in the call to move money out of militarism and into our communities!

Speakers:

  • Stephen Semler, Security Policy Reform Institute
  • Lindsay Koshgarian, National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies
  • Savannah Wooten, Public Citizen
  • Moderator: Tori Bateman, American Friends Service Committee

This event is held in partnership with: American Friends Service Committee, Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND), Massachusetts Peace Action, United Church of Christ – Justice and Local Church Ministries, National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies, Securkty Policy Reform Institute, and Public Citizen
