U.S. Federal Budget As an Instrument for the Common Good

Monday, June 20, 2011 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Have you ever wondered how or if our Federal Budget could be a tool to move our nation to a prosperous, peaceful and just future?

Forum panelists will identify ways the budget can be used to redirect our resources away from war and destruction to improved quality of life, investment in job creation and correcting the increasing disparity of income and wealth.

National Budget Priorities: Cut Military Spending and Fund Our Communities; Move the Money Action Toolkit

Just as peace is more than the absence of war, national security is more than planes and bombs; it includes jobs, schools, housing, and healthcare.
