From heat domes to droughts, climate change has already arrived in Oregon with devastating impact for Oregonians navigating rising houselessness, the state’s legacy of white supremacy, and rural poverty. Is our state government doing all it can to protect our future? Despite broad commitments to climate action, the Oregon State Treasury–which manages $140 billion of our money–still has billions invested in fossil fuels, a sector that has contributed more than any other to the climate crisis.
Join us for the launch of the report:
Risky Business: Oregon Treasury’s Fossil Fuel Problem
at 2pm on Wednesday, April 20
Featuring Bill McKibben and Divest Oregon coalition members
We will feature never-before-published analysis of the state’s fossil fuel holdings. Learn just how much the Oregon State Treasury is invested in fossil fuels and why ditching oil, gas, and coal from our pension funds and retirement portfolios makes climate AND economic sense!
Hosted by Divest Oregon, this launch event will feature a panel discussion of top-line findings, a deep dive of our analysis, and a question-and-answer session. Join us!
