SHARE Joins Divest NY Campaign

SHARE has joined the Divest NY Campaign to get New York public pension funds to divest from fossil fuels. As we deal with the climate crisis and Covid, we learn that both the NY State Public Pension Fund and the NY State Teacher’s Retirement System (NYSTRS) continue to invest billions in fossil fuels. For more information: Divestny.org

Please join us for a Divest NYSTRS Webinar on Thursday, November 12 at 7pm to learn about how these investments are bad for our planet’s future and are bad for the financial future of the pensions that thousands of teachers depend on. REGISTER HERE.

The climate crisis is upon us, with out-of-control wildfires, unprecedented hurricanes, and droughts causing crop destruction. We owe it to our students to create a sustainable energy future. Let’s tell NYSTRS to stop funding climate destruction.

SIGN OUR PETITION HERE.

Hope to see you on November 12.
