CalPERS and CalSTRS have an estimated $9 BILLION invested in fossil fuel production. For eight years, their members have called for their pensions to divest. The Fossil Fuel Divestment Act (SB 1173) would require CalPERS and CalSTRS to divest from fossil fuels by July 2027.
SB 1173 will be heard TODAY, MONDAY, 4/4, in the Senate Labor, Public Employment, and Retirement Committee.
We need lots of supporters to call in with quick public comments like this one:
