Saint Francis of Assisi was also the first “impact divest” or in the Western World.

Saint Francis of Assisi was not only one of the first conscientious objectors and civil disobedience; he was also the first “impact divest” or in the Western World.

At a rather young age, he declared himself to be free of the burden of material and financial wealth inherited from his father, a rich transnational merchant.

He also literally “divested” by taking off all of his clothes before the bishop, his father and hundreds of neighbors to go naked before the Creator and set back in with all Creation.
