Come out to the Green Arcade this Wednesday night to plug into the growing campaign for fossil fuel divestment in San Francisco.
San Francisco's retirement fund has about $1 billion invested in the 200 fossil fuel companies that hold the majority of the world's coal, oil and gas reserves. City Supervisor John Avalos has introduced a resolution urging the retirement board to look into divesting that money and reinvesting in sustainable alternatives: clean energy, local energy retrofits, and more.
This April, the Board of Supervisors will host its first public hearing on divestment and we need to get ready! This Wednesday, come learn more about the campaign and plug into the growing effort. Divestment has spread to over 260 campuses across the country -- let's help kick off the city-level campaign right here in SF.
Here's the Facebook post for this meeting.
