Description: 
The Divest from the War Machine campaign is working to divest ourselves and our communities from weapons and war. There should be no profit in war and violence. The campaign combines organizing around cities & towns, universities & colleges, demanding Congressional representatives commit to stop taking money from weapons manufacturers, and corporate campaigns against huge investment firms that are making a killing on killing. Please join us to discuss the mechanisms of the campaign and how to start your own campaign, as well as other actions to rid our communities of ties to war. www.divestfromwarmachine.org
