    Divestment of PERS Retirement Fund

    Are you a member of the Oregon Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) who wants to ensure your retirement doesn't come at the expense of a livable future? Currently, over 331,000 Oregonians are invested in the fossil fuel industry simply by being a member of PERS, as current or retired public employees.

    Here at 350PDX, we're starting another grassroots campaign to make sure our investments match our values. We've just finished two campaigns that have succeeded in receiving commitments from the City of Portland and Multnomah County to no longer invest in the 200 companies with the largest fossil fuel reserves. We also support student campaigns to divest the endowments of PSU, Reed College, University of Portland, and Lewis and Clark College.

    As a PERS member, we want your input and involvement as we embark on another campaign to remove the social license of fossil fuel industry to destroy the climate and our ability to live on this planet.
