April 2015, WASHINGTON, DC

Youth working with the American Friends Service Committee created a public action in Washington, DC after making 14 different visits on Capitol Hill to deliver the SIPRI report.  The youth wore shirts color-coded to represent the current discretionary budget distribution, with ~60% of the youth in red shirts denoting military spending.  With their backs to passersby, the shirts spelled out MILITARY BUDGET ≠ SECURITY.  Then they turned to face the crowd and the message changed to reveal the things that they think DO equal security:  peace, equality, unity, justice, etc.
