Divestment

Divestment: Stop Investing in Fossil Fuels

Most of the 350PDX Defund/Divest Team is working to Divest Oregon: Reinvest in a Fossil-Free Future, a statewide coalition we founded – now 90 organizations and hundreds of individual members strong! If you want to be engaged in Divest Oregon, or want to receive Divest Oregon actions and meeting announcements, just join the coalition’s mailing list. There are no monthly meetings of the 350PDX Defund/Divest Team at this time. But the team is still active! Taryn continues to lead the Defund/Divest Team in multiple efforts to divest local institutions

  • Move Your Money out of banks that fund the fossil fuel industry.
  • Stop using insurance companies that insure and invest in the fossil fuel industry.
  • Join our campaigns to encourage divestment by local educational institutions.
  • Educate your community organizations such as churches and foundations to look at where their funds are invested and move them out of fossil fuels.

Are you interested in getting a divestment campaign started at your school? We have resources that can help you! Contact: taryn@350pdx.org for more information, including from our national ally, DivestEd.
