As the fossil fuel industry throws more money at fossil fuel expansion, we will turn up the volume of our divestmentmovement.

It’s time for all of us to sever our ties with the fossil fuel industry whose plans will destroy the planet as we know it. Each act ofdivestment takes back power from the fossil fuel industry and helps create a mandate for our leaders to take real climate action before it’s too late. Fossil fuel companies have become the most profitable and powerful corporations in history at the expense of people and planet. Join us to grow this movement stronger than ever in the lead up to the 2015 climate negotiations in Paris.
