Native America leaders continue to call for divestment from fossil fuel industries, pipelines, fracking, etc. and the banks that fund them. In March 2017, we started a divestment team. We focus on personal and institutional divestment from the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and other fossil fuel investments to break the stranglehold the fossil fuel industry has on our democracy and our environment.
We work closely with the Public Bank Santa Rosa (PBSR) work group on supporting a public bank of Santa Rosa to enable the City of Santa Rosa and other local institutions to divest.
Endorse the resolution for a Public Bank of Santa Rosa! We worked closely with PBSR to write this resolution. It is essential to our institutional divestment work. Read more about the tremendous local benefits of a public bank on our site, and on PBSR's web site. Ask local businesses and organizations to endorse as well.
The divestment team also works on individual divestment as well as institutional divestment. Thanks to one of our volunteers Debora Hammond, a retired professor from Sonoma State University, for helping us clarify what we do:

In California, we can lead the way for other cities and states to pull their money out of Wall Street banks and their dirty fossil fuel investments, and put that money back into the local economy. Join us.
