The United States spends more money on war than on programs to house, feed, provide health care for the people. Although we call our veterans the nation’s heroes, we fail to provide them and their families with adequate pay, quality health care, and other needed supports to prepare and return from war.
As people of faith and moral conscience, we denounce war-mongering and efforts to create more conflict and division within and between nations, and demand that our legislators support programs that combat this resource inequality and instead promote the life and livelihood of all human beings.
Join us on Sunday, Nov. 5 at The Gathering, co-hosted by Bishop William J. Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh and via livestream, where we'll hear how the war economy is affecting our communities, and how we can join in the struggle for peace.
WATCH THE LIVESTREAM ON NOV. 5 AT 6PM ET
