No More Wish Lists for Weapons and War 

Today, the United States continues to pursue unprecedented levels of military spending. Our nation spends more on weapons and war than on education, public health, scientific research, infrastructure, environmental protection, and more—combined. A significant contributor to this imbalance is the Pentagon’s Unfunded Priorities Lists, a mechanism that requires the military to request bonus funding above and beyond the Pentagon’s already substantial budget. By eliminating these “wish lists,” Congress can take a significant step toward realigning our spending with our values.

Organize in your Community

Numbers make a difference, and legislators will be more inclined to vote your way if they feel there is a groundswell of support behind your position. You can create that wave through community education.

Engage Effectively with Media

Working with the media is an effective way to advocate; members of Congress pay close attention to their local media — especially when they’re mentioned by name.
