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 accelerate society removing ALL investments in fossil fuel companies, and invest in clean, renewable energy instead.
We have volunteer tasks that can be done from home, such as: mailing letters to the boards of the 1300+ local chapters of the CTA (California Teachers Association), phone calls, and more. Our goal is to reach as many California teachers and community college instructors as possible.
Join the ongoing divestment group which meets the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in Santa Rosa at the home of its fun and enthusiastic leader Jane, who is passionate about getting CalSTRS to divest. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for location.
Video or audio conference possible - still working out the kinks!
