  •  we should ALL be asking whether our employers (2+ / 0-)

    are invested in companies that profit from selling assault weapons or ammunition. I work for a private university and am looking into whether we have investments in Freedom group or Blackstone. If we do, I will urge students to ask the university to divest and their parents will support them. As faculty, I can't do as much as the students, but once students know that their institutions of higher learning are investing in companies such as these, they will act.
    If we do this nationwide, it will have a huge impact on the lobbying power of the NRA which receives a significant portion of it's funding from these sources.
    Do some research- find out whether your employer's investments are harming our kids. I have a 4 and a 6 year old and have been a wreck all week. Now I am channeling my energy into making positive change out of tragedy.
