Divest Gainesville

Gainesville, FL

Inspired by the Native-led resurgence of the divestment movement across the nation, we are a collective of residents of Gainesville advocating for the divestment of all City of Gainesville financial assets from fossil fuels, petroleum pipelines, private prisons and in particular organizations which directly or indirectly finance and fund such operations.

The mission of Divest Gainesville is two-fold: 1) build public awareness of the intersection of racial justice and climate change issues, and 2) to make real, on-the-ground change, beginning here in our very own city by passing a socially responsible investment ordinance to discourage support for fossil fuel pipelines, private prisons, and violations of indigenous sovereignty.
