Tell Chicago City Council: Divest from the War Machine!

Contact your Alderperson to Support the Chicago City Council Resolution to #DivestFromWar!

Chicago is currently investing taxpayer dollars in the War Machine through its pension funds, which are invested in weapons manufacturers and war profiteers.

Thankfully, Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa has introduced a resolution into the Chicago City Council to #Divest from War!

In addition, 8 Alderman have co-sponsored the resolution, including: Alderman Vasquez Jr., Alderman La Spata, Alderwoman Hadden, Alderwoman Taylor, Alderwoman Rodriguez-Sanchez, Alderman Rodriguez, Alderman Sigcho-Lopez, Alderman Martin. You can email and call them to thank them for their support! 

If you don't see your Alderperson listed as a co-sponsor, make sure to 📧Email and ☎️Call your Alderperson asking them to support the Chicago City Council Resolution to #DivestFromWar!

The Municipal Employees' Annuity & Benefit Fund (MEABF) is managed by groups that hold direct investments in weapons manufacturers, including but not limited to Segall Bryant & Hamill, Parametric, Neuberger Berman, JPMorgan, and Acadian. These investments prop up violence and militarism both at home and abroad, a direct contradiction to what should be the City’s primary role of protecting the health and well-being of its residents.
