CalSTRS is the California State Teachers Retirement System. It's an elected board of 12 teachers/school administrators that decide where to invest the pension funds of all CA public school teachers. Today, over 6 billion dollars of teacher money is invested in fossil fuels (coal, gasoline, natural gas.) Only 3 members of the CalSTRS board support divesting this money. 


The Divest CalSTRS campaign demands that teachers invest their pension funds in their students, not in the destruction and racism of the fossil fuel industry. We are dismantling environmental racism and climate destruction through defining the fossil fuel industry. We hope to start a chain reaction, where no one’s money goes towards these injustices.
