Global Divestment Day Rally and Teach-in in Pittsburgh

At 11:30 AM on February 13th, we will rally in solidarity with those most impacted by the effects of climate change and fossil fuel extraction to call on the City of Pittsburgh and its universities to divest from fossil fuels. Hear the stories from those living in front-lines communities most affected by oil and gas extraction. Hear from those organizing on their campuses and in their communities.

Stand with us.

Afterwards, join us for actions organized by local campaigns and a teach-in/discussion at the University of Pittsburgh at 3pm in room 837 of the William Pitt Union. ***RSVP TO THE TEACH-IN HERE: http://bit.ly/GDDPGHteachin

In a time where climate and environmental justice issues are largely dismissed or ignored by the mainstream media and most of our political leaders, we must do our part to fight for change. We must challenge our institutions to rise to the occasion and play their part. We must challenge them to divest. The fossil fuel industry’s profits rely on accelerating global climate change, toxic pollution at home, and lobbying to dismantle protections for working people’s public health.
