The Peoples Climate March has energized thousands of New Yorkers and we are bringing this energy home to force our city and state to divest from dangerous fossil fuel companies. Join together for a week of actions and events during Global Divestment Mobilization 2017.
Momentum to DivestNY builds as Riverside Church, the tallest church in the United States, which has hosted speakers such as Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, has committed to divest its $140 million endowment.
It’s been less than 5 years since the idea of fossil fuel divestment first took hold. It’s now a rapidly-growing global movement that has transformed the narrative around keeping fossil fuels in the ground.
The Fossil Free campaign is just one part of the global movement for climate justice. As long as we weaken acceptance for the industry and keep escalating pressure, we’re on the right track and gaining strength. This is how we win.
