PPEHRC Proposes “People-Peace-Planet” Budget to Congress

We’re proud of our sister organization, Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC), that recently went to Washington, DC on December 10 — International Human Rights Day — to present a “People-Peace-Planet” budget to members of Congress.

“In a press conference in the Cannon Office Building, speakers called on the Congressional Budgetary Committee to pass a budget resolution that re-directs military spending to domestic needs that serve “people, peace and the planet.” They then presented their proposed budget and supporting petitions to staffers of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Co-Chair of the Budgetary Committee.” Read the full story at Social Justice Groups Demand Congress Slash Military Budget, Spend Money on People, Peace, Planet.
