With Trump and the Pentagon pressing for yet another massive increase in military spending, grassroots activists, national organizations and policy analysists are pressing to move the money from wars and preparations for wars to addressing real human needs. As we prepare for this year’s GDAMS actions between Tax Day, April 13 and May 9, and for longer term efforts to change our national spending priorities, we have scheduled two inspiring briefing calls on March 7 and 14.

Neta C. Crawford, Director of the Costs of War Project, is the chair of the Political Science Department at Boston University. She is the author of Accountability for Killing: Moral Responsibility for Collateral Damage in America's Post-9/11 Wars (Oxford University Press, 2013) and Argument and Change in World Politics (2002), named Best Book in International History and Politics by the American Political Science Association. Crawford has served on the governing Board of the Academic Council of the United Nations System, and on the Governing Council of the American Political Science Association.

Mark Dulea, an attorney associated with the National Lawyers Guild, was a co-founder the Green Party in New York. He is a leading climate change activist with 350.org, and news correspondent for WOOC Radio, who speaks widely about the Green New Deal. He formerly served as executive director of the Hunger Action Network of New York State and has run for Congress.
