No War, No Warming

June 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In the face of both COVID-19 and the climate crisis, we urgently need to shift from a culture of war to a culture of care. Funneling trillions into the military to wage endless wars and project military dominance isn’t keeping us safe. In fact, it’s preventing us from investing in true security and cooperation. In a new primer from the National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies, No Warming, No War: How Militarism Fuels the Climate Crisis and Vice-Versa, they lay out how militarism and the climate crisis are deeply intertwined and mutually reinforcing. True climate solutions must have antimilitarism at their core.

Join us for an evening of education with Lorah Steichen from National Priorities Project in conversation with activists across Massachusetts about why our climate conversations must address militarism. And learn how you can plug into campaigns confronting militarism in our communities head on.

Featured Campaigns:
Divest from War, Invest in Human Needs: Taking on L3 Harris in Western Mass and Beyond
The Raytheon Anti-War Campaign to End Massachusetts’ Wars in the Middle East

Sponsored by The Resistance Center, Jewish Voices for Peace Western Mass, National Priorities Project, Institute for Policy Studies, and Massachusetts Peace Action.
