Over 3000 people tell US insurance company State Farm to divest!

After a great action by the US-based Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, over 3000 people have sent a message to insurance company State Farm:

State Farm presents itself as a “good neighbor” – and advertises that “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.” According to the action page, “Nuclear weapons have unacceptable humanitarian consequences and are the only weapons capable of ending human civilization. For State Farm to honestly call itself a “good neighbor,” it must cease financing corporations that maintain and produce nuclear weapons.”

The 2015 update of the Don’t Bank on the Bomb report shows that State Farm has in total invested US$ 871 million in 8 different nuclear weapon producing companies.

The action page helps customers of State Farm and others send a message to CEO Michael Tipsord, to let him know they want State Farm to divest from nuclear weapon producing companies. So far, State Farm has not responded.
