Citizen co-sponsors support the People's Budget

Posted Mar. 24, 2015 / Posted by: Lukas Ross

This morning Friends of the Earth and 11 other groups delivered over 150,000 signatures to Congress in support of the People’s Budget, a progressive budget alternative that prioritizes economic and environmental justice. The signatures were received by Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), one of the architects of the People’s Budget and the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Unlike the House GOP budget, which calls for steep cuts to social spending and giant tax giveaways to the rich, The People’s Budget outlines a tax and spending framework that supports the most vulnerable members of our society as well as our environment.
