SOLVE THE BUDGET PUZZLE: SHARING OUR STORIES WITH REPRESENTATIVES
People’s Forum to “Protect Human Needs – Cut Pentagon Spending.”
Seattle Labor Temple, 2800 1st Ave. Seattle, WA
Friday, Feb 22, 7 TO 8:30 PM
PARKING AND LIGHT REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED
This will be a free, public event where members of our community will share short, powerful stories about the impacts of the economic crash in their own communities. Our goal is to advocate for more funding for job creation, green energy, education, health care, and other human needs.
The event will be a powerful, action producing forum. As you may know, Sen. Murray is the chair of the Senate Budget Committee, has made public statements supporting cuts to the Pentagon while protecting human needs spending……. She is now in a powerful leadership position, and our local efforts have a real opportunity to shape the outcome of the ongoing Federal budget negotiations.
Groups that have come together for the initial delegation and now this forum include The Church Council of Greater Seattle, The Faith Action Network, American Friends Service Committee, Western Washington Fellowship of Reconciliation, GI Voice, Green Party of Washington State, Rainier Valley Neighbors for Peace and Justice, Veterans for Peace, Chapter 92, WA State Progressive Caucus, and West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice.
I hope you’ll be able to join us on the 22nd!
