It's time to divest Richmond from the War Machine! Join CODEPINK and World Beyond War for an initial meeting to discuss the start of a campaign to divest the City of Richmond, VA from weapons companies.
In 2020 alone, more than $770 billion of the US budget was spent on military departments. That amounts to 61% of the Federal Discretionary Budget. Much of this money went directly to the most powerful weapons companies in the world in the form of weapons purchases. These companies are further bolstered through institutional investments from city and state assets through investments via mutual funds. We must work to end these investments wherever they exist, and it starts with the cities we live in!
Join us on Wednesday, April 7th at 7pm to learn more about the Divest From the War Machine campaign and how we can work together to bring it to Richmond!
