350.org has been spearheading the connection (online and off) of divestment activists under the name “Go Fossil Free.” The movement has grown beyond campuses, and Go Fossil Free just launched their official off-campus divestment platforms (even though non-students have been working on divestment since the movement started).
So…now you can sign a petition on the GFF website calling on Maine to divest for the Maine Public Employees Retirement System From Fossil Fuels (MPERS) from fossil fuels! I’ve blogged about efforts in Maine to divest the Maine State Treasury from fossil fuels. Now 350 Maine is targeting MPERS.
Sign on! And find (or even start!) a petition for your town.
