How can divestment movements share strategy and tactics to scale up our winning campaigns? Activists from three divestment movements–private prisons, fossil fuels, and Palestine Solidarity–will explore their different stages, reactions they're generating, and cross-movement points of similarity. Presenters will discuss the connections between these movements, sharing lessons learned through campaign wins and losses. Participants will leave with intersections between these movements and ideas on how to better link our struggles.
