Divestment Celebration & Networking 3/11

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 06:30 PM · 11 rsvps

Divestment_Logo

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're having a celebration of the progress we have made on divestment campaigns. We're especially eager to celebrate the launch of the Fossil Free California campaign that took place on Global Divestment Day at CalPERS headquarters in Sacramento.

So instead of our regular monthly meeting, which was planned for March 4, join us at 1709 Virginia Street (near the North Berkeley BART station) for a party on March 11. The celebration will start about 6:30, and we'll provide some Cheese Board pizza. Please RSVP—and if you'd like, bring a salad or dessert or drink.

There are several important divestment initiatives underway now, and we hope this celebration of our progress will also provide a chance for everyone to share news and plans for all these initiatives: CalSTRS and CalPERS petitions and direct contact, union resolutions, and municipal and faith-based campaigns.

We can use the time to network, touch base, and plan next steps.

New members are welcome to join us.

Railroad Workers & Environmentalists Conference 3/14

Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 09:00 AM · 8 rsvps
Richmond Recreation Center in Richmond, CA

In recent months, public attention has focused on the railroad. In the wake of Lac-Mégantic and other derailments, the public is alarmed about oil trains and the movement of trains in general through their communities. Environmental activists are up-in-arms about the amounts of fossil fuels moving by rail. Farmers and other shippers are concerned about the congestion that has occurred in recent months, but in part to the oil boom.

The public generally has no idea what goes on daily on America’s railroads. Chronic crew fatigue, single employee train crews, excessively long and heavy trains, draconian availability policies, short staffing, limited time off work create challenging safety issues of concern not just to railroaders, but to the entire populations.

Please participate in this cutting edge conference that brings railroad workers, environmentalists, community activists and concerned citizens together in order to build the movement for a safer and greener railroad, on that is more responsive to the needs of workers, trackside communities, citizens in general, and society as a whole.
