“Tax Day to Earth Day” Encourages Financial Reprioritization April 25, 2024

Whitman Wire

Senior environmental studies-politics major Claire Warncke is an intern with both Washington for Nuclear Abolition and Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility and has been involved in planning the Tax Day Events. She discussed the march’s objectives in an interview about the tax day festivities that are coming up at Whitman as well as in Walla Walla. 

“[The goal is] raising awareness and also keeping ourselves visible for questioning the amount of money that’s going towards nuclear weapons and war and militarism in general over funding human needs,” Warncke said.
