Webinar: Divest from the War Machine
When: Tuesday, July 2 at 8:00pm EDT (GMT - 4) / 5:00pm PDT
Featuring panelists David Swanson, Maya Rommwatt, and Susi Snyder
Moderator: Greta Zarro, World BEYOND War
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.
Our panelists for this discussion are:
Maya Rommwatt: Maya is the CODEPINK National Organizer for the Divest from the War Machine Campaign. Maya brings deep experience with progressive causes to her work. She's campaigned for climate justice, wildlife conservation, and public lands. Maya is based in Portland, Oregon.
