We launched Fossil Free California on Global Divestment Day, February 13, 2015, in Sacramento. Divestment activists from all over Northern California gathered at CalPERS headquarters to urge CalPERS and CalSTRS to stop investing in fossil fuels and to sell their Old Energy investments within five years.
The campaign begins!
You can read the three stirring speeches here:
- Dr. Linda Rudolph, preventive medicine doctor and retired CalPERS member
- Jane Vosburg, teacher and retired CalSTRS member
- Russell Kilday-Hicks, VP, California State Employees Association, and active CalPERS member
Add your voice: sign the petition to purge state retirement portfolios of coal, oil, and gas.
