The GOP Tax Plan–new flyer for distribution

Fox Valley Citizens for Peace & Justice is alarmed about the GOP Tax bills.  The House and Senate versions  may soon be reconciled and passed into law, and signed by the President.  If so, it will create an enormous transfer of wealth and power from the 99% to the wealthiest.  We see this as class warfare and will fight it.

Please join us in this work.  Sign up on this website  on the left side of our home page to get into our email list.   Come to our meetings at Highland Avenue Church of the Brethren on the first Saturday of each month at 9:00 AM.   read more
