Webinar: Divest-Reinvest: Towards a Local Peace EconomyActivity Date: Sunday, January 24, 2021 - 18:30 UTCDuration: 90 minBrief Description:
Grassroots-led divestment campaigns are springing up all over the world. There's a reason why divestment is trending, and that's because it's a winning organizing tactic. Divestment gives direct agency to individuals and communities to cut ties to destructive industries. Change can be affected on a grassroots level, by individuals, by institutions, and by communities. In this panel, three leading organizers will present case studies of successful & diverse divestment models, including fossil fuel and weapons divestment. Beyond divestment, we will explore how divestment must be paired with reinvestment strategies that advance a just transition from a war economy to a local peace economy.
