April 14 – Tax Day Rally

Donald Trump Doesn’t Deserve a Tax Break!

President Trump’s tax bill is ensuring billions of dollars in profits to large corporations-and peanuts to working people. Meanwhile the President and Congress have agreed on unparalleled increases in Pentagon spending that will lead to more wars, more suffering, and take even more money from programs that benefit all of us.

Cuts in essential programs from climate protection to Medicaid, housing, Social Security and Medicare are on the drawing board. We must turn around Washington’s budget insanity! Join us April 14th at 12 pm as we rally on Cambridge Common!

Sign Up!
Join us on Tax Day to call attention to these dangers while promoting our budget priorities to fund the programs we all need.

The Trump tax cuts for the 1% (approved by Congress) will drain the treasury of over $1.5 trillion of needed revenue over the next 10 years. These deficits will drive deep cuts to health care, education, food stamps, affordable housing and just about every other domestic program for years to come.

Congress has voted dramatic increases in war spending and first-strike nuclear weapons. These will make the world much more dangerous and drive further cuts to our economic, social and environmental security. No first strike nuclear weapons for Trump!

President Trump’s latest Budget proposal makes draconian cuts to housing, Medicaid, food stamps, and almost every other domestic program. To top it all off, Trump has still refused to release his tax returns–the first President to do so in 40 years.

Each year the Congressional Progressive Caucus proposes an alternative, the People’s Budget, that fully funds vital social programs, taxes the 1%, and cuts Pentagon spending Join us on Tax day to oppose Trump’s budget and tax priorities.

SUPPORT THE PEOPLE’S BUDGET, JOIN THE RALLY ON APRIL 14TH!

April 14 March for Science

Dear Activist,

Greater Boston PSR is proud to be sponsoring the 2018 March for Science in Boston, and we’re hoping to see you there: https://actionnetwork.org/events/march-for-science-boston-2018-science-strikes-back.

The theme of this year’s Boston March is “Science Strikes Back!”. The focus will shift from defending attacks on scientific credibility (the theme of last year’s March) to being proactive–advocating for science-based public policy, and getting more people involved in science. In particular, the spotlight will be on climate change, where the science so needs to be heard.

Join us as we rally in Boston’s Christopher Columbus Park on Saturday, April 14th from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. There will be speakers and information about how science impacts our lives and informs public policy. Look for GBPSR’s table! Following the rally, attendees will be encouraged to advocate for climate-related bills in the Massachusetts legislature with a call-in day later in April and a State House advocacy day in May.

There are several good reasons that Greater Boston PSR is supporting this event and we think you will find great value in it, too. Please join us, and bring your friends and family.

Where: Christopher Columbus Park, Atlantic Ave. Boston
When: Saturday, April 14, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
What: Speakers, tables, playground, waterfront, friendly people
How: Blue Line -> Aquarium Station or Orange Line -> Haymarket or State St stations
Why: Because science deserves our energetic support!
