The big "sequestration" goes into effect on Friday with tremendously negative impacts on our communities and schools.

Please join AFSC, Catholic Peace Ministry and others as we unfurl a 20-foot banner depicting the US military budget vs all other components of discretionary spending (healthcare, education, environment, etc.). Our message is simple: Invest in People, Not the Pentagon.

We will gather in front of the-- soon to be closed-- Gateway School (1800 Grand) at 2:00 this Thursday, Feb. 28.  

Check out the new budget banner video and click here to read about AFSC's work to wage peace in Chicago.
