Teachers' Pension Must Divest from Line 3 Pipeline!
Most people are not aware that over $6 billion of teachers' retirement money, from tax dollars, is being handed over to fossil fuel companies like Enbridge which is building the Line 3 pipeline where Indigenous water protectors are being arrested for putting their bodies on the line to stop construction right now. Most people don't know that CalSTRS board members Harry Keiley and Sharon Hendricks refuse to meet with students of color and teachers living next to fossil fuel sites to talk about environmental racism.
We are thankful that State Superintendent of Education Tony Thurmond recently publicly called for CalSTRS to divest from fossil fuels and joined State Treasurer Fiona Ma who has consistently supported divestment as CalSTRS board members.
