Each April, Dr. Bob Dodge, President of PSR-LA’s Board and co-founder of Citizens for Peaceful Resolutions, calculates the cost of nuclear weapons programs to our communities.
The current estimate of this year’s Ventura County tax bill for nuclear weapons is $189 million.
On Tuesday, April 17
Please join us and gather on the corner of Telephone and Victoria from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m to peacefully protest the outrageous waste of resources spent on our deadliest weapons of mass destruction, nuclear weapons.
We encourage folks to bring signs stating what they would prefer their tax money be spent on instead of bombs.
You can see the costs for other US cities and counties and use the community calculator to calculate what you individually or your community spent on nuclear weapons programs in 2017 at http://www.psr-la.org/nuclear-costs/
