"Don't Bank On The Bomb" Campaign
7:00PM - 9:00PM
COST: Free admission
The Nuclear Free World Committee invites the community to learn how to “Win beyond Washington”. At this time when our issues have limited legislative support, “Don’t Bank on the Bomb” is a divestment campaign that bypasses legislation, targeting institutions and individuals. Speakers Ron Ehrenreich and Susan Hansen explain the role of financial institutions in relation to nuclear weapons – which fund weapons, which do not, and what community members can do to press banks, pension funds, etc. to withdraw such dangerous support.
Ron Ehrenreich and Meagan Weatherby of Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union will share how the investment philosophy of the Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union aligns with this campaign. Susan Hansen, owner of Hansen’s Advisory Services, Inc. will be talking about the importance of socially responsible investing.
