We staged our usual rally at the State Investment Council’s meeting that takes place every two months in Trenton. We made a strong stand against fossil fuel investments. We demonstrated outside and sang songs with the help of the Solidarity Singers before the meeting as the council members were arriving.
Several of our members testified at the hearing to pressure the council to change their investment practices including:
Tina Weishaus – DivestNJ Coalition Member / 350NJ-Rockland Steering Committee Member / Chair of Sustainable Highland Park
Barbara Pal – DivestNJ Coalition Member / 350NJ-Rockland Steering Committee Member / Climate Reality Project
Greg Gorman – Conservation Chair, NJ Sierra Club Chapter
James Boyle – Communications Coordinator at the Central Jersey Climate Coalition
