Divestment team work party 6/3/2015


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 hope you’ll join us this time for a work party: sign-making, brainstorming, and planning.  We will meet at the 350.org office, 1729 Telegraph Ave., Oakland (near 19th St. BART). Please RSVP if you are planning to come, so we can know how many people to expect. Newcomers are welcome! We will include updates about divestment activity in our area, but we’re going to make most of the evening a work party for:

  • Sign-making for our CalSTRS rally on June 12

  • Brainstorming about how to build support for SB 185 (the coal divestment bill)

  • Planning—how we can put more of our ideas into action

We will provide the materials for our sign-making and brainstorming. Please bring some snacks for the party.

If you’re unable to attend in person but want to join us by phone, please let me know. We’ll provide a call-in number for you in our meeting reminder just before the meeting.

To be buzzed into the office, follow the prompts on the box. (Or call Robert Silvey, 510.684.9645.)
