The US government now spends 57% of our discretionary budget on military expenditures - that's roughly $700 billion for 2018.
Join Veterans for Peace and Washington Against Nuclear Weapons on Tax Day to raise awareness about US military spending.
Pax Christi will also be holding a "penny poll" to see how we'd rather spend our tax dollars!
The threat of nuclear catastrophe has grown under the current Administration, and we’re now on a path to spend $1.7 trillion over the next 30 years rebuilding our entire nuclear weapons arsenal. At the same time, desperately needed social programs are being cut, and communities of color and low-income communities are hurt the most. Racial justice and nuclear weapons issues have been closely tied since the beginning of the nuclear era, but their connections are often lost.
Join us for an important discussion with Dr. Vincent Intondi, author of African Americans Against the Bomb, on the intersection of US nuclear weapons policy and the fight for racial equity.

Nagasaki-Hanford Bridge Project: Joining the Victims of Production and Use of Nuclear Weapons
Beginning March 5, 2018 a Japanese “hibakusha” (atomic bomb survivor), Mr. Mitsugi
Moriguchi, a child at the time of the Nagasaki bombing, will visit the Hanford region as a first messenger to Hanford from Nagasaki, on a mission of peace. It is a mission funded, in part, by the City of Nagasaki. In addition to participating in a series of public events, Mr. Moriguchi will meet with Hanford Downwinders exposed in childhood to ionizing radiation from Hanford. Mr. Moriguchi will be accompanied by an undergraduate student from Nagasaki University who will meet and connect with local students in Washington state.
The events of the Nagasaki-Hanford Bridge Project are sponsored by Consequences of
Radiation Exposure (CORE),* a Washington State non-profit, and Global Studies at
Whitman College. The program opens in Walla Walla, Washington and moves to Richland, Washington.
