This morning Friends of the Earth and 11 other groups delivered over 150,000 signatures to Congress in support of the People’s Budget, a progressive budget alternative that prioritizes economic and environmental justice. The signatures were received by Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), one of the architects of the People’s Budget and the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
