Monday, April 15, 11:30am to 1:00pm, 12th & Main, KCMO

Kansas City Move the Money Campaign

The Federal Budget Crisis Is Not A Deficit Crisis.

It's A Crisis Of Priorities.

Choosing to continue enormous tax breaks for the millionaires and spending 60 percent of public discretionary dollars on the Pentagon makes no sense, as millions struggle to find work and to feed and house their families.

Economic disparity or economic equality

By Ira Harritt, program coordinator in Kansas City

“This is America’s opportunity to help bridge the gulf between the haves and the have-nots. The question is whether America will do it.”
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in his last Sunday sermon, Remaining Awake through a Great Revolution  

Dr. King’s question is still before us. We still have the ability to bridge this gulf, even though it has been growing larger and larger, especially in the past 30 years.
