Help us push the City of Chicago to adopt an ordinance written by 350 Chicago!
The ordinance requires the City to immediately freeze any new investments in the top 200 fossil fuel companies* and divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.
Alderman Maria Hadden is the chief sponsor for the ordinance. Some officials are resisting the move, in favor of a policy that does not absolutely commit the City to sell off fossil fuel holdings within our time frame. This is not sufficient to protect Chicago and its future inhabitants!
Let’s make sure they move forward with full divestment!
Make an impact today!
