NWTRCC has launched a brand new website for our Divest from War, Invest in People campaign! Visit us at www.wartaxdivestment.org.
Refusing to pay war taxes is divesting from state violence, fossil fuels, and military prisons. Unlike other forms of divestment, war tax refusal often involves civil disobedience. Personally divesting from militarism enables immediate reinvestment in people and the planet.
This website is a great way to introduce people already interested or active in divestment movements to war tax resistance. It builds on the work that NWTRCC and its affiliates have been doing around divestment and war tax redirection since the 2016 tax season! The site includes: Q&A, links to NWTRCC resources, a sign-up form, and quotes from current resisters, like this one:
“I divert the money that I save from war tax resistance to local efforts and projects that I like. So a lot of it goes directly to my local school because I prefer to directly support education and other local projects in New York… I think a lot of people talk about what they’re going to do with their refund check, and I would like to see that expanded to, what would you do with all of your tax money?”
Please help us get the word out!
