Divest from War / Invest In People Signers

We, the undersigned, are divesting from the taxes that fund war, and investing in people, planet, and justice. We will not wait for the U.S. government to end its wars. We will not wait for government approval of our actions. We are divesting from war by refusing some or all of those federal tax dollars that fund it, or by living below the taxable income level. We invite you to join us in this public act of civil disobedience to war and war funding.

To sign the Divest/Invest list, please fill out the registration form on the War Tax Divestment page. If you check the “use my name” box under the “Publicize” section on the form, we will add your name below. You can also fill out the form to request more information.
