Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities Charity Profile
Our mission is to change US budget priorities to reflect a national commitment to education, healthcare, energy independence, job training and deficit reduction -- at no additional taxpayer expense -- by eliminating funding for unneeded Cold War era weapons systems.
The Priorities! Campaign is an unusual mix of citizens - from former military brass and businesspeople to religious leaders and ordinary citizens - who believe America can have a more humane government. We aim to create a political culture, grounded in spiritual and human values, that will not tolerate wasting billions of dollars on nuclear weapons, Star Wars, or other outmoded weapons, while, for example, one out of every six of our own kids live in poverty and millions of children worldwide die each year from hunger-related illnesses. Creative, inspired people, like you, can join us - and take action.
