September 2022 — As part of our Bread Not Stones campaign, Pax Christi USA has endorsed the People Over Pentagon Act, HR 8040, sponsored by U.S. House Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Mark Pocan (D-WI).
Learn more about the People Over Pentagon Act here. The website includes the text of the bill and several resources, such as a “track your representative” tool.
Pax Christi USA has long advocated against the militarization of the U.S.’s federal budget and the grossly disproportionate amount of money given to war-making rather than actual human needs. We are proud to join our colleagues at the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, FCNL and AFSC, Public Citizen, MoveOn, Center for International Policy, Roots Action and many more in supporting this bill.
