Protesters storm Heritage Foundation building to call for ‘Budget for the People’
White House and Heritage Foundation budget proposals will unjustly impact the poor, organizers say.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Tuesday, organizers and activists with the People’s Action coalition took to the White House and the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, to protest proposed budget cuts they say will have a devastating impact on the environment, the poor, and communities of color.
An energetic crowd of around 1,000 people gathered between LaFayette Park and the White House on a gray, drizzly morning in the District to chant, drum, and listen to speeches from people on the front lines of budget cuts.
