Uncovering the Arms Trade: The Arms Sales We Aren’t Told About

When:
October 28, 2021 @ 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
2021-10-28T16:00:00-07:00

When Congress get’s notified about a weapons sale from the U.S. to another country, the people generally find out about it. Information on the huge sales are more easily available, because they are over a “threshold” amount. What about the sales under the threshold? Congress never needs to be notified, and we are left in the dark on sales that add up to billions and billions of dollars.

Lillian Mauldin is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin holding a BA in Honors International Relations and Global Studies with a minor in Arabic. She is a founding member of Women for Weapons Trade Transparency and a Thematic Specialist with Amnesty International USA’s Military, Security, and Police Transfers Coordination Group. She was a summer 2021 participant in the US Department of State Critical Language Scholarship and a summer 2021 Policy Intern at Forum on the Arms Trade. Lillian hopes to continue her career in the arms control and non proliferation field, ideally lobbying for decreased defense budgets and more rigorous arms export control laws.

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
