July 2, 2019 "Divest from the War Machine" Free Webinar
5:00 PM PDT, 8:00 PM EDT

Grassroots-led war divestment campaigns are springing up all over the world, from students organizing to divest university endowments from weapons manufacturers and war profiteers, to municipalities and states coming together to divest public pension funds from the war machine.

Divestment is actively choosing to stop financing companies, like weapons manufacturers, military contractors, and war profiteers. On this webinar, we'll talk with 3 leading organizers about the strategies and tactics needed to run a divestment campaign. We'll review the divest list -- the companies to target in a divestment campaign. We will cover different divestment models, including municipal, institutional, and university-led campaigns and lobbying elected officials. And we'll discuss lessons learned from World BEYOND War's recent successful campaign to divest the city of Charlottesville, VA from weapons and fossil fuels.
