The cost of registration for #NoWar2018 will go up after August 1st. It’s now $56 or $20 for student or low income. It will go up to $70 or $35 for student or low-income. Sign up now at the lower rate.

This is World BEYOND War’s annual global conference, being held this year in Toronto on September 21 and 22, 2018, at OCAD University. We will explore how the rule of law has been used both to restrain war and to legitimize it — and how we can re-design systems to abolish the institution of war and uphold human and ecological justice.

The conference will take place on Friday September 21 (5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., doors open at 4:00 p.m.) and Saturday September 22. (9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., doors open at 8:00 a.m.).

List of confirmed speakers.

Are your savings invested in war?

In collaboration with our partners at CODEPINK and As You Sow, we’re excited to unveil the Weapon Free Funds database, an online tool that collects investment information about thousands of mutual funds from the top financial institutions. With a quick search, you can see if your savings are invested in weapons makers and military contractors – and find alternative, socially-responsible investment options. Whether you’re looking to divest your personal portfolio, or research where your municipality, university, or other institution is invested, the Weapon Free Funds database is an invaluable resource for the war divestment movement. Check it out here!
