Defund Militarism, Invest in Communities

October 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Militarization feeds into much more of the world around us than we realize, from police on the streets to immigration policy to the climate crisis crashing down around us.

Join United We Dream, Institute for Policy Studies, UndocuBlack Network, Dissenters, Sunrise Movement, and the ACLU of Texas Border Rights Center for a timely cross-movement conversation about demilitarization and community investment. To achieve true security for our communities, we must defund militarism, reclaim our resources, and invest in the public services and institutions that strengthen our communities and keep us safe.
