Investing in our future: KIDS!
Divestment played a key role worldwide in turning the tide against South African racial apartheid. This group focuses on urging CalSTRS (the California State Teachers Retirement System) to divest its billions from fossil fuel companies. Where California leads, the rest of the world tends to follow. It's a big opportunity to push the world along to removing all investments in fossil fuel companies.
We have volunteer tasks that can be done from home: mailing letters to the boards of the 1300+ local chapters of the CTA (California Teachers Association), and more. Our goal is to reach as many California teachers and community college instructors as possible.
The ongoing divestment group meets the 1st Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the home of a volunteer in Santa Rosa. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for location.
Video or audio conference via Google Hangouts possible - still working out the kinks!
