Location: Wooden Shoe Books, 704 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147

Join the Divest Philly from the War Machine Coalition for our next campaign planning meeting! We'll discuss the campaign to divest the city of Philadelphia's pension fund from nuclear weapons. And we'll make an action plan for flyering, petitioning, organizational outreach, and other tactics to build awareness and collect signatures in support of the campaign.

The following 5 financial institutions manage the city's assets: Strategic Income Management, Lord Abbet High Yield, Fiera Capital, Ariel Capital Holdings, and Northern Trust. In total, these asset managers have $11+ billion invested in nukes. We're urging the Philadelphia Board of Pensions to instruct its asset managers to exclude the top nuclear weapons producers from its holdings. Learn more about the Divest Philly from the War Machine Coalition.
