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 is trying to divest all CA teacher pension funds from fossil fuels. We're doing this by
1) Trying to pass a divestment bill that would force CalSTRS to divest
2) Getting teachers to pressure the CTA to support divestment
3) Pressuring individual board members to divest.
