ADHRB Join 60+ Orgnizations to Congress: No More COVID-19 Money For the Pentagon

Congressional leadership must ensure that future COVID-19 response bills do not include any additional funds for the Pentagon, ADHRB joined 61 organizations representing pro-diplomacy, veteran, faith, environmental, and anti-war communities, and more, from across the country, said in a letter on 22 April.

The letter, led by Win Without War, states that the Pentagon’s $756 billion budget provides more than enough resources to respond to the crisis caused by the pandemic. While there may be a limited role for the Pentagon in responding to the crisis — by, for example, aiding with construction of hospitals — the letter’s signers agree that these activities should be funded by the already-oversized Pentagon budget.
