Did you know $1.4 trillion in weapons are sold each year and that over 50% of your tax dollars fund war, violence and oppression globally? Your university, alma mater, church, work, pension plan, city and state could be investing in this war machine. So here is something you can do locally to stop the out of control war spending and weapons manufacturing. You can gather friends and make them stop.
We’ll teach you how when you join our No War Machine Webinar December 5th, 2017 at 1:00pm PT / 4:00pm ET! Register for the webinar here.
Our nation’s financial institutions are making billions off of U.S. military interventions, the global arms trade, and the militarization of our streets. It’s time for us to #divestfromwar NOW!
To prepare, you can check out our Divest from the War Machine Summit where a variety of speakers shared a wealth of knowledge with us. Read a recap of the day here, and watch videos from the day here!
Through this webinar we will:
- Mark the release of a set of campaign resources to help kick-start your campaigns
- Provide training on how to choose a target for your campaign
- Connect you to a network of other organizers who are tackling weapons divestment
- Open space for questions
Join us to learn the ins and outs of the Divest from the War Machine Campaign, and for a training on target selection. Following the webinar, you will also have access to campaign resources to help you get to work moving money away from weapons producers and starving the war machine.
