Divestment Celebration 3/11/2015


We are working with colleges, universities, public pension funds, cities, counties, and faith-based organizations. We ask that they immediately freeze any new investment in fossil-fuel companies and divest completely within five years.

We're having a celebration of the progress we have made on divestment campaigns. We're especially eager to celebrate the launch of the Fossil Free California campaign that took place on Global Divestment Day at CalPERS headquarters in Sacramento.

So instead of our regular monthly meeting, which was planned for March 4, join us at 1709 Virginia Street (near the North Berkeley BART station) for a party on March 11. The celebration will start about 6:30, and we'll provide some Cheese Board pizza. Please RSVP—and if you'd like, bring a salad or dessert or drink.

There are several important divestment initiatives underway now, and we hope this celebration of our progress will also provide a chance for everyone to share news and plans for all these initiatives: CalSTRS and CalPERS petitions and direct contact, union resolutions, and municipal and faith-based campaigns.

We can use the time to network, touch base, and plan next steps.

New members are welcome to join us.
