  1. I support the message and what you are doing. May I suggest brighter colours on the bill boards?

  2. Simone Meeker says:

    My husband and I would each love to buy a Tee that says “3% of US military funding could end starvation on earth.” Are they available or shall we have someone print them for us?

  3. Oyet Kenneth Odong says:

    The most appealing is “war can not be humananized” we need to write it in Arabic ,English ,LUO,Kiswahili ,Dinka and Luganda and place them in all major town.

    This will reach millions in their own mother toungue and sescond languages

    Thank you let the preaching continue

    How can I get one of these in my town, Syracuse ,NY? There’s a vacant billboard right near downtown that is seen by hundreds or commuters daily. It would be nice to give people something to think about while waiting at a red light. You put a dollar to something and people respond.

  6. Frances O'Neill Zimmerman says:

    If you need a footnote to explain what tiny percentage of US military spending could end world hunger, your message needs to be re-worked.
    1)I think the word “Peace” ought to appear more often in the message at the top of every billboard, while the bottom question works as is.

    2)You could argue that Syria is the saddest country on earth now, not Iran.

    3)Images of destroyed ancient cities in that region are powerful. Use them.

    3)Ditto for images of refugee camps, the immediate result of wars.

    4)Only one of the billboard messages speaks to me –the Einstein one — but many people today will not recognize who Einstein is.

    5)Maybe simple repetition of one message on
    all billboards over a long period, followed by another for another stretch of time, would be more effective, would familiarize people with the organization. “No More War.” “Wage Peace.” “Swords into Ploughshares.” or “War Is Not Good for Children.”( End with that. Or add “and Other Living Things” if it’s not under copyright.)

    6)Put up the U.S. “Defense” budget in actual numbers and compare it to another category
    like education or funding for the National Institutes of Health –or make a pie chart and let the gross difference speak for itself. End with the usual Q at the bottom.
    7 )”United States Policeman of the
    World” with a list of places where we are militarily engaged followed by the $ figure for military spending. End with usual Q at the bottom.

    I think the billboards are a great idea. The message needs to be refined, simple and powerful, with an emphasis on waging Peace.

  7. niloofar shambayati says:

    I suggest creating messages that connect the military and war budgets to the domestic costs of war because most Americans care little about the death and plight of black and brown people around the world.

    a) Citing percentages of the military and war budgets that can drastically reduce unemployment, under-employment, hunger, poverty, violence, and other socio-economic ills by investing in the infrastructure, education, job training, providing comprehensive health care to all Americans, and much more;

    b) Citing the amount of the money borrowed to fight the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that we’ve been paying back with our tax money. It’s been calculated that, if no more money is borrowed to wage more wars, the payment of those debts and the accrued interest would end in 2051!
