Teleconference with Rep. Markey: Cutting the Nuclear Weapons Budget
March 8, 2012
Time: 1:00 pm Eastern
RSVP to get call info: email@example.com
We invite you to a special phone call with Rep. Ed Markey an outspoken critic of nuclear weapons. He will be joining our call to talk to us about The SANE Act, his new bill which would make $100 billion in cuts to over a dozen nuclear weapons programs and already has 41 cosponsors.
The SANE Act gives us a fantastic opportunity to put nuclear weapons on the chopping block during this year's budget process. After we hear from Rep. Markey about his bill, we will have a strategy discussion about how to make cuts to nuclear weapons a reality in 2012.
Congressional committees will likely begin marking up the nuclear weapons budget in April and May, so we need to develop grassroots strategies to pressure key committee members. Please come prepared with your ideas about how we can mobilize the grassroots in the coming months.
