The first and quickest thing you can do to help is to sign our petition urging the State Board of Investments to divest its pension holdings from fossil fuel companies. After that, get connected! Hundreds of people and counting are already on board. Like our Facebook page to get involved with others in our growing movement.
Divest-Invest Minnesota is mobilizing to protect our pensions from risky investments in fossil fuels. See here for information about our strategy with the voting members of the State Board of Investment – the governor, secretary of state, auditor and attorney general – to ask them to direct the SBI staff to divest from risky fossil fuel investments. We are also involved in efforts to contact legislators and compose new legislation. A 2019 bill will be taken up again in the 2020 legislative session.
We are inviting Minnesota pension holders to advocate for divestment, and we are also influencing candidates for office to embrace sound economic and environmental strategy. See below for ways you can help.
