    Divestment gives direct agency to individuals and communities to cut ties to destructive industries. 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 peace economy.
