Creating a Divest Research Team
Addressing Common Divestment Myths
Divest from the War Machine: On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, World BEYOND War hosted a webinar on divestment, featuring David Swanson of World BEYOND War, Maya Rommwatt of CODEPINK, and Susi Snyder of PAX/Don’t Bank on the Bomb. 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. On this webinar, we talk about the strategies and tactics needed to run a successful divestment campaign.
Listen to Ben & Jerry's Founder talk about divesting from war with CODEPINK's Jodie Evans.
In this No War Machine Webinar, we give the ins and outs of the Divest from the War Machine Campaign, walk you through newly launched organizing resources, and provide a training on choosing targets for your campaign. After watching the webinar, here are some steps you can take to stay connected to the movement!
