#NoDAPL Rally! Tell CalPERS: Divest from DAPL

Start: Monday, February 13, 2017 8:30 AM

End: Monday, February 13, 2017 9:30 AM

Trump's administration is trying to push through the Dakota Access Pipeline. It's time for us to RESIST!

California's giant public pension funds - California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) and California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) - own a major chunk of Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the pipeline. The board of CalPERS is voting at a public meeting on February 13th on whether to support a plan to divest from DAPL. Currently, they plan to oppose divestment. Unlike most of the investors in the Dakota Access Pipeline, they have to listen to the public — if we speak out.

We'll start at Crocker Park, then march one block down Third Street to CalPERS. We'll rally, enter the public meeting, deliver over 50,000 signatures, and speak out in support of divestment.

Together, we can get the California funds out of the unjust and dangerous Dakota Access Pipeline.
