We’re campaigning to divest Chicago from weapons! Chicago is currently investing taxpayer dollars in the War Machine through its pension funds, which are invested in weapons manufacturers and war profiteers. These investments prop up violence and militarism both at home and abroad, a direct contradiction to what should be the City’s primary role of protecting the health and well-being of its residents. Thankfully, Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa has introduced a resolution into the Chicago City Council to #Divest from War — tune in to learn more about the Resolution, its possible impacts, and next steps to get it passed.
Featuring Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, Greta Zarro of World BEYOND War, Charles Johnson of Chicago Area Peace Action, Newland Smith of IL Poor People’s Campaign, Juan Pablo Herrera of Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance, Stefi de le Torre of Divest Mike, Melissa Brice of 350 Chicago, and Shea Leibow of CODEPINK.
