Ireland Drives Out Fossil Fuels: Time for NYC to Divest!

Sunday, March 5th @1pm

St Pat’s Parade For All in Queens

Meeting Point: Caffébene coffeeshop 41-31 Queens Blvd, Sunnyside, NY 11104

Please join us this Sunday at the St. Pat’s Parade in Queens!

350NYC is delighted to join the St Pat’s for All Parade to celebrate and give thanks to the government of Ireland for their recent vote to divest their sovreign holdings from fossil fuels: oil, coal and gas. This historic decision is a testament to the commitment of the people of Ireland to a just and sustainable planet. We also take this opportunity to honor the life and legacy of Ireland’s first female President, Mary Robinson whose global leadership promotes human rights, gender equality, women’s leadership and climate justice

350NYC is calling upon New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer to divest city pension funds from oil, coal and gas. New York City should immediately freeze any new investments in fossil fuels and divest from direct ownership in any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years

We will take this message on the road at the St. Pat’s for All Parade in Queens this year and we invite you to join the party. This is a great family event and an opportunity to have fun and share an important message.
