Join the Green Party of Santa Clara County as we host a Divest for Justice, Invest for Impact Community Forum and Workshop. Speakers will include representatives from local and national groups focused on intersectional divestment campaigns and community investment. The discussion will focus on successes, lessons learned and outreach strategies and tactics by various on-going campaigns. We will address the importance and challenges of collaboration across divestment movements and how to focus as a community on our mutual goals for social and environmental justice. This event is inspired by Code Pink's newest campaign to Divest from the War Machine.
