Hi there,
On Wednesday, CalSTRS (the California State Teachers Retirement System) Board is meeting right here in San Diego (normally they meet in Northern California).
We'll be calling on them to divest their massive (nearly $200 Billion) pension fund from fossil fuels. We will use the public comment section, which begins around 5 pm. We'll get there early, to organize ourselves and sign up to speak – at 4:45 pm. Speakers may speak for 3 minutes each. We have talking points here (but please use your own words).
Joining us will be:
  • Jim Miller, California Federation of Teachers (which passed a resolution supporting fossil fuel divestment) and Professor at City College
  • Kevin Beiser, Board Member, San Diego Unified School District (which also passed a resolution) and math teacher
  • Eric Halgren, Prof of Neuroscience @ UCSD, who led the recent successful effort for a faculty resolution at UCSD in support of fossil fuel divestment
We're asking for teachers, students, parents, and others to come support this effort. Even if you choose not to speak, submitting a slip saying who you are and why you support divestment is super helpful.
WHEN: Wednesday, February 1 at 4:45 pm
WHERE: 9095 Rio San Diego Drive, Suite 350, San Diego, CA 92108
Please share this email widely, as well as our Facebook event.

Please let me & Anne Marie, cc'd, know if you can attend. Thank you!
