Divestment Meeting 10/7/2015


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.

Our next 350 East Bay divestment meeting will be on Wednesday, October 7—from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Please join us for updates. discussion, and networking. We will meet in our home in North Berkeley (3 blocks from North Berkeley BART). Please RSVP if you are planning to come, so we can know how many people to expect. Newcomers are welcome!
