Weapons manufacturers steal from all of us. They take billions of our tax dollars to make products of death and destruction, reaping huge profits while our communities at home suffer. We are faced with rampant funding shortages for housing, education, food assistance, and clean water. Meanwhile the CEOs of the top five weapons makers pulled in a combined salary of $96 million. We need to lead and pledge to divest from war ourselves and the next step is to join forces locally to call out those Making a Killing on Killing; our cities, state pension funds, Universities, churches, and the BlackRock offices near you.
I want to join a local movement to divest my community from weapons and war! We need to invest in housing and healthcare, not tanks and bombs. Our cities, state pension funds, universities, and faith communities need to stop investing in war and guns. I want to be a part of the solution and stand with my community to take on the war machine!
