Statements of Support

The New York City Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund began in the Winter of 2004. We helped introduce a City Council Resolution led by Council Member Bill Perkins, who represented Harlem District in Manhattan.

We had a successful hearing on June 9, 2005 with the State and Federal Legislation Committee. Unfortunately, by the end of the year, the resolution did not come to a vote in front of the full Council. There are no plans to reintroduce the resolution into the new City Council voted into office for 2006.
