 Tax Day

US taxpayers will pay $56.3 billion today to fund nuclear weapons programs. Is this your priority? Calculate your individual and community costs @ http://bit.ly/1I1iUOE
Each April, Dr. Bob Dodge, PSR-LA Board Member and co-founder of Citizens for Peaceful Resolutions, calculates the cost of nuclear weapons programs to our communities.In 2014, Los Angeles County spent $1,785,041,517.60 on nuclear weapons programs, and the city of Los Angeles spent $692,183,507.40! These are tax dollars diverted from community needs such as education, health care, environmental protection, and many other important social services – spent instead on deadly weapons that must never be used.

May Meeting: Mothers Speak on the Dangers of Nuclear Power

2015-03-31 11:50:25
At our May meeting, we honor  Julia Ward Howe’s original intention for Mothers’ Day. In 1870, Julia Ward Howe took on a new issue and a new cause. Distressed by her experience of the realities of war, determined that peace was one of the two most important causes of the world (the other being equality in its many forms) and seeing war arise again in the world in the Franco-Prussian War, she called in 1870 for women to rise up and oppose war in all its forms. She wanted women to come together across national lines, to recognize what we hold in common above what divides us, and commit to finding peaceful resolutions to conflicts. She issued a Declaration, hoping to gather together women in a congress of action. Read the proclamation here.
