Announcement: Divestment Summit Discussion


The Sustainability Matters and Divest + Invest groups are beginning to plan a "Divestment Summit" to discuss why churches, colleges, and other organizations are divesting from fossil fuels. The hope is to have a one-day event in the spring of 2016 that would be similar to a mini Nobel Conference focused on divestment from fossil fuels and related issues from ethics and economics to fiduciary and legal. We invite everyone with an interest in the topic to join us for a planning conversation on Monday, June 8, from noon until 1:30 in the Konferensrum (JCC 203A). Feel free to bring your own lunch or to pick something up in the Cafe to enjoy while we talk and plan. If you are interested in the topic but cannot attend, please send suggestions and questions to Chuck Niederriter (
