Seattle Divest/Defund Disaster

Seattle Divest/Defund Disaster


We do all we can to instigate, support, and guide divestment across the spectrum of governmental and institutional entities (as well as by individuals):


  • Defund DisasterHelp us shut down the banks funding catastrophic projects–and persuade foundations, faith groups, and others to move their money to banks that are aligned with their values. This fight started with KXL and the #ShutDownChase action, and moved on (rather beautifully, we think) to the October 23 100 Banks, 1 Day action.
  • Seattle DivestPlease send this form to any City employees or retirees you know! And please call SCERS this week!
  • University Divestment: We support the student groups at Divest UW and Divest Seattle University in their work to get their universities to divest.
  • State Divestment: We encourage you to contact th Olympia FOR climate change subgroup, which has taken up trying to get the State employee pension fund divested.
  • Faith Group Divestment: We have a slide presentation that we can give to support churches trying to divest, and speakers willing to come to your group to talk about climate change.
