Water protectors, climate warriors, earth lovers, tree huggers—and especially SF city workers and retirees who want a stable and healthy pension and future:
Come one, come all, to the January 24th Retirement Board meeting, where they will FINALLY vote on full divestment of community-sickening, climate-destroying, pension-cratering fossil fuels!
We need EVERYONE at the meeting to build maximum pressure on the Board of this $20 million pension fund. Let’s drive home the message that the public cares about this issue and hasn’t given up over their months and years of negligence and delay. If you’ve been planning to take a couple hours off work to resist sometime, this is a good time to do so. Getting a final vote on our ultimate goal is very exciting, but if it goes down, that’s it for full divestment for at least a few years. So we need to rise to the occasion.
If you CANNOT attend (or just want to send a letter in addition to attending), please send a comment by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Address your comments to the Retirement Board, identify if you are a member of the pension system, and make clear you are in favor of full divestment from fossil fuels.
The City of New York just did this, and SF’s late mayor, Ed Lee, really wanted to see this happen. What a fitting memorial to Mayor Lee if the City that Knows How could get the job done on the 24th.
We’re so close to winning a fossil-free San Francisco. Let’s do this, team!
