DNC Delegates Uniting for Peace
Start: Sunday, August 16, 2020• 3:00 PM • Central Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)
At 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 16 - the day before the 2020 DNC will commence - Biden and Sanders delegates from Wisconsin and local peace activists will assemble at the Peace Billboard in Milwaukee, which is part of a global campaign led by World Beyond War. The Peace Billboard has a simple but powerful message: "3% of U.S. Military Spending Could End Starvation on Earth."
The delegates are calling on Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders to join them, either in person or virtually, and publicly commit to enacting a more principled foreign policy that prioritizes diplomacy and multilateralism over militarism and cuts the bloated Pentagon budget.
The Peace Billboard is located on the southeast corner of West Wells and James Lovell (7th) Streets, just one block from the Wisconsin Center, where the in-person DNC events will be taking place.
