Divest: Stop Funding Nuclear Weapons
Nuclear weapons only exist because weapons developers are paid to make them. Yet most arms companies don’t make most of their money from nukes. That means that efforts to divest from nuclear weapons companies can effectively convince these companies to step away from nuclear development. You can personally divest, or you can call your bank, other financial institutes, local government officials, universities, and more, and ask them to divest.Get Your Money Out of Nukes
