Its been about a year since Snoop (Lion) released his ‘No Guns Allowed‘video, so its refreshing to see he’s following it up with a new antigun violence campaign.
In a partnership between Unload Your 401k and anti-gun violence campaign, No Guns Allowed, entertainment icon Snoop Dogg and tech leader Ron Conway are joining forces to call for divestment from the gun industry.
“Every American is at risk of gun violence, but we all can also be part of the solution,” Conway said. “I am reaching out to my entire network to encourage companies of every size to divest their retirement portfolios from the gun industry.”
The PSA, from Campaign to Unload and States United to Prevent Gun Violence, is the second installment of support for Unload Your 401k, a program designed to raise awareness of divestment as a unique and powerful strategy to help make a meaningful change in preventing gun violence.
“There is a straight line from gun industry investment, to gun industry profits, to funding of the NRA. Half the value of these companies comes from mutual funds and most of the ‘investors’ in these funds have no idea they are inadvertently part of the problem. Now they can be part of the solution,” said Jennifer Fiore, executive director of Campaign to Unload.
“Greedy gun corporations are benefitting from the pain in our community,” said Baker. “It’s important that we vote with our money.”
