Victory: By 10-1 Vote Burlington Vermont City Council Passes a Resolution to Divest From Weapons Manufacturers!

The Burlington, Vermont City Council passed a resolution on July 12, 2021 that would keep the city from investing in weapons manufacturers and requests that the Burlington Employees’ Retirement System divest from any weapons manufacturing companies if any assets are currently invested.

The resolution, introduced by City Council member Jane Stromberg, came after months of work by a coalition of activists in Vermont which included members of CODEPINK, WILPF, Veterans for Peace, and World Beyond War. This is just the beginning of the coalition’s work in Vermont. Find more information and read more here.
