Uniting to Dismantle Racism and Militarism in U.S. Foreign Policy
September 17, 2021, 3:00:00 PM
The major challenges facing Americans today – racial and gender injustice, economic inequality, pandemic disease, climate change – cannot be solved without international solidarity and human compassion. Endless wars and endless Pentagon spending only exacerbate these problems, making people at home and abroad less safe. Without addressing the racism and militarism at the core of U.S. foreign policy, progress toward a more sustainable, just, and peaceful world will not be possible.
Please join us for a webinar to explore how progressive groups working on a wide variety of domestic and foreign policy issues can join together to dismantle structures of militarism and white supremacy.
