SF Earth Day Parade Includes Divestment Activists



Putting the politics back into Earth Day, many members of 350 Bay Area joined hundreds of other marchers from several environmental and social justice organizations in San Francisco today. The march started in Justin Herman Plaza, where Jane Vosberg and Madelyn Stelmach discussed the campaign for CalPERS and CalSTRS divestment. A marching band led the parade up Market Street from the Ferry Building to Civic Center, and Robert and Deborah Silvey carried banners calling for dirty-energy divestment and clean-energy reinvestment. Bill McKibben, Mark Hertsgaard, and other from the coalition spoke at the rally. (Photos by Kathy Barnhart)

Statewide Activists Plan Strategy for CalPERS/CalSTRS

The April 11-13 summit gave a boost to our campaign for moving these funds toward divestment from fossil fuels. Funded by 350.org and held at the Holy Spirit Retreat Center, the summit brought together divestment activists for our first face-to-face statewide meeting.
