We are working with colleges, universities, public pension funds, cities, and faith-based organizations. We want them to immediately freeze any new investment in fossil-fuel companies and divest within 5 years.
This meeting will be a three-hour workshop given by Susan Strong of The Metaphor Project to learn how to talk about divestment in a clear, accessible way: "Speaking American about Climate Change and Divestment: Using Words, Phrases, Images, or Metaphors about Climate Change that Americans Can Hear." Susan will have copies of her book Move Our Message: How to Get America's Ear for sale ($10). She has generously offered to provide this training free of charge, though donations to the project are appreciated.
Attendance is limited to 20, so do RSVP. To prepare for the meeting, be sure to read Susan's suggestions and thoughts here.
If you would like to join us for a simple potluck meal before the training from 5:15-6:00 pm, please contact Deborah.
