Move the Money 2021 Coalition

*************************************************************

It will take some ambitious PEOPLE POWER. It will take building new fellowship and SOLIDARITY. But together, we will make our priorities heard! Finally our country will put its money, not towards more and more weapons, but towards the HUMAN NEEDS that matter most!

If you are a member of a community organization, union, or faith group that believes it’s time to MOVE THE MONEY join the action below!

***********************************************************

We call upon the Maryland Congressional delegation to advocate forcefully for these Federal budget changes:

·  Major reductions in military spending, beginning now.

·  Immediate and significant increases in domestic spending to protect the climate and to address systemic racism, economic inequality, and the immigration crisis.
