TELL (don’t ask) your representatives to STOP normalizing Donald Trump’s plans to use and allow nuclear weapons

above: Lorraine Schneider quote

Every nutritional program for children has been historically cut for military spending.  It takes pennies and day for food and BILLIONS for bombs.  NO Nukes have ever saved a life.  Food programs save lives.

After watching the short 1986 documentary Women for America, For the World found below, here’s a link for How to Find and Write your State Representatives:

 House of Representatives

TELL your State Representatives to STOP normalizing Donald Trump’s plans to use and allow nuclear weapons.  

Tell your State Representatives to STOP funding Bombs instead of Nutrition for children and senior citizens and the poor.  

In an interview with Chris Matthews, Trump said he was open to nuking Europe because it’s a “big place.”

The ever relevant  “WOMEN FOR AMERICA, FOR THE WORLD” (Academy Award winning documentary Film) is being posted here for educational and NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSE.

Leading American women speak out about the dangers posed by nuclear weapons and call for a new vision of security based on affirming life rather than destroying it. With the specter of nuclear weapons proliferation looming even larger today, and with the moribund nuclear power industry attempting to ‘re-brand’ itself as a ‘clean energy’ solution to global climate change, this clear-headed film is as relevant today as when it won the prestigious prize in 1986.

“An activist is someone who makes an effort to see problems that are not being addressed and then makes an effort to make their voice heard. Sometimes there are so many things that it’s almost impossible to make your voice heard in every area, but you can sure try.” ~ Joanne Woodward
