Tell Comptroller Stringer to Show the Planet some Love on Valentines Day! Divest NYC pension funds from the banks funding the Dakota Access Pipeline #DeFundDAPL and from the top 200 fossil fuel companies doing the most harm to our climate! #RESIST
Join Josh Fox, NYSNA, 350NYC, 350 Brooklyn, Fossil Free NYC, NYU Divest, RVSD Church Beloved Earth Community and Divest NY coalition activists for a rally, press conference and petition delivery to Comptroller Scott Stringer.
We commend NYCERS and TRS (the two largest NYC pension funds) for recently completing divestment from thermal coal and are glad to see that studies are finally underway to analyze both the carbon footprint and the carbon risk and of all five NYC pension funds. We very much hope that it will lead to immediate divestment from the top two hundred fossil fuel companies doing the most harm to our planet. But there’s no guarantee, so we need to keep the public pressure on! Climate change waits for no one!
We’ll be delivering our petition during the rally so we’re doing one last big push to get as many signatures as possible before the 14th. Please sign and share. Tell Comptroller Scott Stringer to be a leader and stop funding climate change.

Join us on the 14th to help spread the love!
