The race is on, with over 20 Democratic candidates currently in the running, but are they leading to peace? This epic campaign season will be a ripe opportunity to raise public awareness and ensure all candidates refuse donations and, in turn, influence, from the top U.S. weapons manufacturers. Can you send a message to presidential candidates today, asking them to commit to refuse donation from companies that make a killing on killing?
This issue is critically important for all presidential candidates because they are running to become Commander-in-Chief. The president-elect will make key decisions on issues related to national security and defense. These decisions must not be based on the profit motive of weapons manufacturers!
The Bernie Sanders campaign has already led the way and committed to not taking campaign contributions from weapons manufacturers, but many more candidates remain. Let’s first flood their email with our crucial request, then we’ll birddog (engage them on this question) them everywhere they go. Let us know by filling out this form if you’re interested in engaging with a presidential candidate to make their commitment. And if you already plan to confront a presidential candidate, print and bring along this copy of the commitment (color version or black and white) to refuse weapons donations for them to sign!
Towards a peaceful tomorrow,
Ann, Ariel Carley, Caroline, Jodie, Kelly, Kirsten, Lily, Maya, Mark, Medea, Nancy, Paki, Ryan, Sarah, Tighe, Ursula, and Zena
