Fossil Free California is launched!

We launched Fossil Free California on Global Divestment Day, February 13, 2015, in Sacramento. Divestment activists from 350 Bay Area, 350 Sacramento, and other Northern California groups 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!

The rally included a bit of street theater: scientists faced off against Big Oil, and divestment activists saved the day—and saved the Earth, who was feeling somewhat battered and fracked.

There were also three stirring speeches. You can read them here:

Add your voice to the campaign: sign the petition to purge state retirement portfolios of coal, oil, and gas.
