The divestment movement is an increasingly important element in the fight against global climate change. Choosing to divest shows commitment to challenging and ultimately changing the system that rewards corporations for destroying our planet.
The 350PDX Personal Divestment page is designed to help you take your money out of the companies who profit off of this destruction while making the powerful statement that you will not stand idly by and contribute to this system.
350PDX does not offer investment advice. If you would like to explore divesting your personal assets from fossil fuels, please read the resource materials linked below and, most importantly, consult with your financial advisor to see if changing your investments is right for you. Selling your holdings may involve financial risk and have unintended tax consequences.
On this page we have compiled sample letters, studies, and additional resources to help individuals in their quest to divest their personal assets and take a stand against global climate change.
Recently, we’ve also been encouraging divestment from banks that are funding the destruction of the planet starting with the Defund DAPL campaign. For some of us it will be complicated to leave your bank and challenging to decide where to go next. The Defund DAPL website has information on moving as well as bank and credit union suggestions. Additionally, we’ve added a Move Your Money Toolkit to the resources below. Please note, the toolkit is from a particular bank–350PDX is not recommending any particular financial institution.
