The U.S. arms trade is complex. There are a lot of moving parts with not a whole lot of transparency. Join us for “Weapons Sales 101” to learn the basics about the U.S. arms trade with the director of Forum on the Arms Trade Jeff Abramson! Jeff Abramson is a senior fellow for arms control and conventional arms transfers at the Washington DC-based Arms Control Association and also directs the Forum on the Arms Trade. Prior to re-joining the Arms Control Association in September 2019, he managed the Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor, the de facto monitoring regime for the Mine Ban Treaty and Convention on Cluster Munitions. Immediately prior to joining the Monitor, he served as a policy advisor and director to the secretariat of Control Arms, the global civil society alliance that championed the adoption of the Arms Trade Treaty that for the first time established global regulations for the trade in a wide array of conventional weapons. He is former Deputy Director of the Arms Control Association and Managing Editor of their publication Arms Control Today. An arms trade expert, his work has been published in numerous journals and comments cited by major US and global media.

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!
