Divest Your City
Around the world, we’re campaigning to divest cities from weapons and war. Public funds shouldn’t be propping up death and destruction. Our grassroots campaigners are collecting petition signatures, forming city-wide coalitions, and meeting with their elected officials to call for divestment from war and reinvestment in life-affirming sectors, like healthcare, education, and renewable energy. This summer, thanks to WBW’s campaign, Charlottesville divested the city operating budget from weapons and fossil fuels. Is your city next? Email us at greta@worldbeyondwar.org to get started.

Call-in Day for Korea Peace
With the alleged breakdown of the US-North Korea talks last weekend, it is crucial that the U.S. Congress  create the political space for the talks to succeed.

Today, U.S. residents should call District Offices of Congress Members and urge Representatives to co-sponsor House Resolution 152 for a formal end to the Korean War. Hasn’t it been long enough?

WorldBEYONDWar is a global network of volunteers, activists, and allied organizations advocating for the abolition of the very institution of war. Our success is driven by a people-powered movement –
support our work for a culture of peace.
