Nuns on the Bus 2018
NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus are on the road again — for the first time in two years — to hold members of Congress accountable for their votes on the 2017 Tax Bill and the many attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Nuns on the Bus “On the Road to Mar-a-Lago” tour includes 54 events in 21 states over the course of 27 days. The tour launched with a rally in Los Angeles on Monday, October 8 and will end at Mar-a-Lago in Florida with a “Fiesta for the Common Good” on Friday, November 2.
Our Goal: To tell the truth about the Republican Tax Law and hold elected officials accountable for their votes. We know that this tax policy hurts our communities while giving handouts to the wealthiest in our nation. Nuns on the Bus are encouraging voters to focus electoral energy on reasonable revenue for responsible programs ahead of the 2018 midterms.
We are on the road to discuss the connections between voters’ participation in the midterm elections, their elected officials’ votes, and these harmful policies at stops across the country. Then, we will carry what we learn to President Trump’s resort at Mar-a-Lago. We must work for just tax policies that mend the gaps in our nation! Join us on the bus!
