Demand that Congress strike down Trump’s budget

Donald Trump’s inhumane budget cannot pass. He allocates $54 billion more for war, while slashing lifesaving programs here and around the world.

Millions of people around the world are now threatened by famine, with children under 5 the majority of those starving to death.

Conflicts and drought — often fueled by climate change — have devastated regions across the world.

Trump’s budget proposal flies in the face of everything America stands for.

Pouring money into the overstuffed pockets of the Pentagon is not the answer, especially when we sacrifice the environment, public health and our commitment to helping those in need.

Now is the time to let people know that the lives of our brothers and sisters, at home and around the world, take priority over an unneeded and dangerous spending binge at the Pentagon.

It is time for us to get our priorities straight.

Join me in standing up for science, research, the arts, humanities, and foreign aid to famine-torn countries and demand that Congress strike down this cruel budget.
