NWTRCC promotes tax day actions every year, collecting a list of actions around the U.S. and sending out a press release widely in early April and posting reports on our website and on our Facebook page. Look under our Media link above for “articles” and “podcasts” for recent news items.
Tax Day is April 17, 2018
Are you making plans for actions between now and Tax Day? Take some inspiration from 2017 actions, such as:
- Ithaca, where their Collective Redirection was highlighted in the local media, and,
- Milwaukee, where war tax resisters organized a protest at a local military base with other groups including Welfare Warriors and Peace Action-Wisconsin, or,
- See this list of action ideas or this list of Quick Steps for Tax Day 2018
Once again NWTRCC is encouraging Collective Redirection to Black, Brown, and Indigenous Resistance as part of our ongoing Divest from War, Invest in People campaign. This effort supports organizers who are directly targeted by state-sponsored violence and are fighting for liberation in our communities. It challenges us to actively build stronger and more connected movements to take on militarism, racism, and occupation in all its forms. Not just charity, Collective Redirection is intended to build relationships and strengthen solidarity.
Post Your Action: Use the form below, or email the details, or send in this form (PDF), and we’ll announce actions, workshops, film showings, etc., between now and tax day on our website and in a national press release.
