This week, the Senate is planning to vote on the international affairs budget—money for everything from nuclear nonproliferation to vaccinations to conflict prevention to feeding the poor. Some senators may try to slash the budget, which is already far too low.
For far too long, the military budget has been a massive hammer and every problem from terrorism to human rights abuse is a nail. We can’t change that unless we rein in the bloated military budget and invest in tools like diplomacy and development that can prevent conflicts and make lives better.
Groups around the country are mobilizing people to make sure the Senate doesn’t make a shortsighted mistake on international affairs funding. Will you add your voice to our call?
This year’s budget for diplomacy and development will be setting the standard for the tight budget for years to come. We need to make sure we have as much support as possible for a strong budget. Click here to take action.
Thank you for standing up for peace.
