Annually, LEPOCO is present at post offices, to leaflet to the public, informing people on how discretionary funds, funded by our income tax money, is distributed by the Federal government.
Here is one quote from a recent flyer: “As our social fabric is stretched thin by widening income inequality, politicians criminalize the poor, fan the flames of racism ad xenophobia to divide the poor, and steal from the poor to give tax breaks to the rich and budget increases to a bloated military.” ~Dr. William J. Barber, II – The Souls of the Poor Folk, a report auditing America, Institute for Policy Studies for poorpeoplescampaign.org
LEPOCO will begin planning this effort soon. Plan to join us in 2022! Call LEPOCO (610-691-8730) for more information. This is important!
The flyer we like to distribute is pictured to the left, and is produced annually by the War Resisters League. We keep some in the office and we share at festivals and events.
