WAR IS NOT GREEN: How Militarism Fuels the Climate Crisis and What You Can Do About It

It’s time to talk about militarism and the destruction of our planet. We are living in the midst of a climate and ecological emergency. Instead of responding to this emergency by investing in community needs and transitioning away from fossil fuels, the U.S. government is investing more in militarism to maintain imperial control over a dying planet. Militarization must stop. We cannot allow our government to prioritize power over people any longer.

On Saturday, August 6th, join us virtually or in person at The People’s Forum in New York City to learn from and join organizations working to fight militarism and advocate for a just transition to a clean energy economy.

Our speakers, including Vijay Prashad, Abby Martin, Todd Miller, and Greta Zarro, will talk about how militarism and climate change are creating a crisis at the border, COP27, the rising threat of nuclear warfare, the importance of fossil fuels in the war in Ukraine, how the U.S. military contributes to environmental catastrophes, and more. A full list of speakers is coming soon.

In addition to learning about this topic, you will have the opportunity to join the movement to end militarism and the climate crisis. Between our series of speakers, local peace and environmental organizations in NYC will talk about their work and how you can get involved based on your skills, interests, and availability.

We’re facing an unprecedented emergency for people and planet. It’s time to gather and fight for our future.

Join us on August 6th.To hang out with the CODEPINK team, join us early for a reception in the lobby of The People’s Forum at 2pm!
