An Action to take! #DivestFromFossils
It is time to demand that our elected officials act to freeze all investments in fossil fuel companies and divest public funds from all investments in coal, oil and gas producers. We’re in a climate emergency! Demand our state leaders divest from fossil fuels IMMEDIATELY! Sign the petition letter.
