Legislative Team Meeting

CA_climate_leg_pic.png

2017 is going to be one of the most exciting and critical years in state history for climate legislation!  

California is leading the way for the rest of the country. Silicon Valley area legislators will play a key role in the coming months, and with our new allies in the CA State Assembly and Senate, there is much we can accomplish. The Republicans want to see us fail, but we need to demonstrate that you can have an economy that is both strong AND green. The earlier passage of AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act, provides the tools for a sharp reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.  Now, it is up to each of us to make it happen!

Please join our new team as we plan for our upcoming campaign!

We're so excited to get to know you all and get to work!

-Brian and Deborah

Fossil Fuel Resistance Campaign Meeting - May 7

We need to keep 100% of all fossil fuel reserves in the ground to prevent escalating and uncontrollable climate disruption. Big Oil and their cronies in the President's administration and Congress are concentrating their efforts on increasing coal, oil and gas production and to derail the EPA's power plant emissions regulations. This is a critical time for grassroots resistance to thwart their plans. Join us to discuss what we can do on these and other issues.

Divesting from Fossil Fuels

Belmont Library, 1110 Alameda de Las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002

Do your investments reflect your values? If you own mutual funds or bank with a major bank, you are likely to be supporting the world's largest polluters: fossil fuel companies.  These companies fuel climate change and are betting against the Paris Agreement. 350.org Founder Bill McKibben says, "If it's wrong to wreck the climate, then it's wrong to profit from that wreckage."

In this talk, you will learn:

  • Why removing fossil fuels from your portfolio makes ethical and financial sense.
  • How to find the fossil fuels lurking in your portfolio and 401k, and how to find fossil free funds.
  • Sustainable investing for Human Impact + Profit.
  • How our banks support fossil fuel development.
