This conference call will share information about the statewide divestment activities of Fossil Free California, which is sponsored by 350 Bay Area Divestment and other 350 groups around California.
Our agenda will include the following:
News about Paris: In spite of the horrendous terrorist attacks In Paris, the climate talks will be in progress there this week (see 350.org’s “Road through Paris”). Our call will come just days after marchers around the globe—including many in California—demanded climate action from the world leaders at these talks. We'll have news from people on the ground in Paris, including possible followup actions for the divestment movement.
Updates about Fossil Free California’s plans to “divest the rest.” The passage of SB 185 requires CalPERS & CalSTRS to divest from coal. We are now working on plans to push the pension funds to divest from oil and gas as well.
Divestment news from around the state: What is happening in your area? What do we need to be focusing on? Share your ideas, successes, and challenges.
