Commit: Take the Pledge
I pledge to work to Divest from weapons companies and invest in ethical, life-affirming solutions
The only way we can achieve a peaceful world is if we reduce the power of those who profit from war.
The moral imperative
This is a moral issue for all of us.
It is time to put a stop to the havoc wreaked on people and the planet by the spread of U.S. wars and militarism. We believe it is unethical to profit from weapons companies that fuel U.S. military interventions, the global arms trade, and the militarization of U.S. police forces.
We all believe that killing, oppressing, and violating the rights of others is wrong. Aiming to profit from the companies perpetuating such actions is no less wrong.
Divesting from the war machine is one of the most effective ways for investors, communities, and individuals to align their values with their actions, and take responsibility for the resources they control.
At its core, divestment is a question of doing what we can with what we have.
Investors face an historic opportunity to cut ties with the corporations at the root of the war machine, and to reinvest in ethical, life-affirming sectors that support our communities and protect our planet.
