**TAKE ACTION** Support “The People Over Pentagon Act of 2023.” --- Cut the Pentagon budget to meet social needs!

Sign on to support the Call to Cut Military Spending
to Address the Climate Crisis and Fund Vital Domestic Needs
Congress proposes to spend $886 billion next year on the Pentagon budget, an increase of $44 billion over the already bloated 2023 military budget – more than either President Biden or the Pentagon requested.
- I support Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s bill [H.R. 1134] – “The People Over Pentagon Act of 2023”, which would cut the Pentagon budget by $100 billion. This money is needed to meet the challenge of the climate crisis by making a just transition to a sustainable renewable energy economy and to fund urgent domestic priorities, including strengthening our social safety net to protect working people and the poor.
