Thank you to everyone who helped make this a success and a special thank you to Pat!

MONDAY VIGIL ASKS: What is Militarism?

Militarism promotes violence and use of force as ways to solve problems

WE NEED A CULTURE OF PEACE INSTEAD

Militarism diverts TRILLIONS of our tax dollars towards destruction.

WE NEED TO PROMOTE PROSPERITY FOR ALL INSTEAD

U.S. Military interventions disrupt world cultures and indigenous societies.

WE NEED TO CELEBRATE CULTURES

Militarism is a deterrent to peaceful resolutions.

WE NEED DIPLOMACY — NOT WAR

The U.S. Military is the single LARGEST consumer of fossil fuels, contributing to climate change.

WE NEED A HEALTHY PLANET
