Ask the Treasurer

February 2020

Dear Fiona,

I am excited and pleased to hear about the actions you have taken to urge CalSTRS to divest from fossil fuels. Is there anything I can do as a private citizen to offer support of this endeavor? Keep up the great work!


Dear Erin,

Thank you for sharing your support of fossil fuel divestment. Climate change is an issue of great concern to me. Climate change threatens our quality of life and poses material risks to communities. It is my goal to address the causes of climate change and build a more resilient infrastructure system in California. I believe that where we invest our money reflects our values, and we should be valuing a clean energy future for California.

There are several things you can do to help support fossil fuel divestment and promote a low-carbon economy for California. You may wish to contact your legislators to see how you can be supportive in the passage of key climate bills. You can also reach out to Fossil Free California and inquire about how you can be supportive in its various fossil free divestment campaigns. Additionally, you can contact the CalSTRS and CalPERS Boards and urge them to divest from fossil fuels.

Again, thank you for joining me in taking a stand for fossil fuel divestment.
