As Ukraine joins the many nations around the world being devastated by war, the People’s Life Fund invites you to join us as we redirect resisted war taxes to local efforts that counterbalance the harms of the war economy. It will be an uplifting evening that will highlight the possibility of what is possible when our resources and efforts are devoted to peace and justice.
While we love holding our annual potluck and event in person, we will again celebrate our Tax Day event on Zoom as a precaution against COVID exposure.
People’s Life Fund War Tax Redirection Granting Ceremony!
Thursday April 14, 2022 from 6:00 to 7:30 PM
Please email email@example.com for the Zoom link and password.
The People’s Life Fund is excited to give grants of $2,000-$5,000 each to fifteen exceptional Bay Area groups offering critical services in Northern California communities. We welcome you to attend our virtual Granting Ceremony, where a spokesperson from each of these groups will receive the grant and tell us about their mission and their work.
Those of us who challenge our national spending priorities lament the fact that the health, housing and social services so desperately needed in this time of global crisis have been depleted over the years because so much of our taxes are devoted to militarism and war. As we struggle to address the magnitude of the Coronavirus epidemic, along with so many other health disparities here and around the world, we also know that the crisis of climate chaos deepens every day, and urgently needs to be addressed. The US military is the single largest driver of climate change.
We are proud to support the following groups with our 2022 war tax redirection:
Tri-Valley CAREs (Communities Against a Radioactive Environment)
Radio B’alam – Mayan Voices / East Bay Sanctuary Covenant)
We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For – Arm The Girls Femme Defense
Arab Youth Public Art Project/Art Forces
