Divest in Gun Companies

Call to divest from gun companies

If you have a 401k, 403b, pension plan, or mutual fund, call the fund administrator to insist they divest from gun companies. If you can change your mutual fund choices yourself, consider opting for one that doesn't invest in guns. Many investment groups offer socially responsible mutual fund options. One power in this country is absolute-- money. Institutional investors, like universities and school districts, are the biggest investors on Wall Street. Remember Apartheid? Divestment contributed to its demise. You have more financial power than you realize. Use it!
