Activate Congress to Divest

As we enter the Spring season, we need to tell Congress it’s time for them to do their part and commit to “No Money for Weapons Manufacturers and the NRA.” Congress is home for Spring break, so grab your pink gear and show up at a town hall or public hearing in your community.

Click here to find a town hall. To find how much your member of Congress takes in weapons and gun contributions, check out our resource page.  We have the signs and flyers you need to show up and demand action! Oh, and don’t forget to send us your pictures!

CODEPINK is committed to ending the funding of war. This past week, CODEPINK activists across the country showed up outside the offices of BlackRock — a war and gun supporting investment firm — to call on the company to divest from the war machine.

In 2017, weapons manufacturers (companies like Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, General Dynamics, and Northrop Grumman) spent more than $125 million on campaign contributions! The NRA regularly spends between $1–$1.5 million during campaign cycles. It’s time for Congress to commit to a peace economy and stop taking blood money!

For a weapons free world,

Jodie, Rita, Natasha, Nancy, and Sarah
