Pull the Plug on the Profit: Divesting from Assault Weapons & High Capacity Ammunition Magazines
December 2, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
With Featured Speaker: Jeff Merritt
Senior Advisor to New York City Public Advocate and Mayor-Elect of NYC, Bill deBlasio
Jeff is the architect of the New York City Public Advocate’s Office Wall Street for Change Campaign and a co-founder of the Campaign to Unload. In the months following Sandy Hook, these two efforts have resulted in millions of public and private investment dollars being withdrawn from the largest manufacturers of commercial assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines.
Jeff has more than a decade of domestic and international experience in civic engagement, political consulting, democracy-promotion, marketing and communications. In 2012, he was named one of City & State’s “New York City Rising Stars: 40 Under 40” for his work at the NYC Public Advocate’s Office.
Jeff has been providing guidance and technical assistance to Delco United on our municipal divestment campaign and is prepared to share information and answer questions about how to effect change in gun policy via economic strategies.
Following the presentation, Delco United will complete a short business agenda with committee updates, organizing needs, and upcoming events.
