Those manufacturing the nuclear weapons are making a fortune, and are actively promoting the nuclear arms race.  This webinar will explore strategies and actions to reverse the financial interests in nuclear weapons by action to cut nuclear weapons budgets, end investments in nuclear weapons corporations, increase investments in peace and sustainability, and promote the economic value of peace.
